As many of you know, I struggle with picking colors and understanding color value. Thus, I was eager to take Jennifer Riefenberg’s More Color Play. We did a lot of stitching today – mostly Scotch Frame – all with the same thread, while Jennifer explained how the background and thread colors appear to vary as they interact with each other. Add in a Woven Stitch in the middle of some of the Scotches in a different thread with a different color value and you get even more differences. I chose the warm (blue) colorway and it was interesting to compare the same canvas with those doing the cool (pink/red) colorway. The biggest stitching challenge was all the compensation as the kites are on different oblique angles. I am enjoying the simplicity of the stitching along with getting a better understanding of color and its interactions on a canvas. Here’s my Day 1 progress.
