A Landscape Of Stitches





As you can see my sketch book is always used for exploring line, colour, composition and just experimenting and having fun!
It's useful to record all my visual thoughts.
By working the stitches on to the boiled wool I was able to create furrows in the land.
The sketches I use as a guide, I will change aspects and develop pieces as I progress.
I do get frustrated some times, as I just wish I had more time to devote to my art work.
I'm sure I am not alone in this!
I had better get back to my sketching.
Hope your having a good week.

Hi Kayla, I have just discovered you via a friend perusing Etsy. I love your work! The way you capture depth in your landscapes is so inspiring. I could look at them for hours, and then travel into them in my dreams!

Gorgeous work as always.
Great to see the transition between sketchbook and actual worked pieces.
lovely lines, marks and texture created in your piece with the base fabric and your lines/layers of stitch.
Beautiful ;0

Super! I love seeing the conceptualized idea transformed into the actual art piece. (And seeing others artists sketchbooks always thrill me!)

I think sketch books are just as exciting as finished work Kayla coo. I wish some of them could be published as they make fascinating reading.
