Sedum heads I ~ first of two
This was inspired by a huge bed of sedum that I found last fall ... the colours were stunning in that light.
So, I had started this series over the winter and then put them aside to work on a couple of other pieces that had become important. While digging through my colour searches, I came across the little water colour I used to determine my colour palette for the work. The goal at the time was to only set the pigments that I was looking for in the finished piece.
I find the process of colour searching so very helpful ~ the pieces started up again and with
this little watercolour to drive me on ~ the second is almost completed.
This is watercolour on muslin, rovings and hand-stitch
