More Color Play – Day 1

Standard

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.
