Worked on my 3rd piece for "Connotations". This one I stitched a lot more, mainly running but a bit of chain stitch; also used dyed string couched on top. This is strong I used when pole-wrapping shibori last year, which of course retained the dyes used so I couldn't chuck it. So pleased to find a use for it.
I'm wondering if this piece has too little contrast - any ideas?
This is a detail - I actually like it better close up than from a distance, I just don't think it grabs any attention because the tonal values are all the same except for the string. What can I do?
