|This is starting to look better.|
I consulted my tutor and a neighbour who mentors me when I ask and both said the same that I needed to include some of the surrounding colour so the trees blend in. I did this and am moderately pleased with the result.
If only it was easy. The process so far has highlighted 2 things. The first is the benefits of leashes and the second is my lack of experience with mixing colours. My mentor asked me if I had my colour palette chosen and although I had chosen many colours I might use, I had not chosen a specific range. That took time and has made things easier. The other work tool I have decided to adopt is to have bobbins wound ready to use like they do at ATW. I have also decided not to waste time pulling weaving out which has been a feature of my weaving in the past; sometimes I have pulled out as much as I have woven.
The sky 's looking good.
