It will be fun to see this develope. I like the subtle painting of the cloth. Do you use watercolors?
yes it is water colour first as a background to stitch over. Sometimes I use colour pencils to heighten the colour. I have painted the calico first with a wash of gesso or white acrylic paint. It stiffens the fabric but is is easy to draw onto then.
Does the gesso interfere with the needle?
love your beautiful observations
Thank you Mo.
Ahhhhh Louise ... LOVE your paint-stitching !!!!!!!
