It has been on and off the easel several times, but all it needed were some vertical lines to tie some elements together and to create a bit more interest in an otherwise "quiet" (relatively speaking) area.
This piece started life off as a linen tablecloth that I bought from a charity shop. You can just see, the fabric's woven pattern on the bottom right.
I stapled a section onto board, applied some gesso and texture (modelling paste, scrim, tissue) before applying layers and layers of colour. A lot.
Circles began to present themselves to me so I went with the flow and encouraged them to emerge with my paintbrush and charcoal. There is more stamping, stenciling and scumbled paint, writing and finally, the sewing.
I have been working on this for days and I am delighted to see it completed.
