Behind the scenes

After finishing the initial part of the Wild Mother herself I felt a little stuck.  Much thinking time – then plotting and planning on paper before any further commitment to cloth takes place:

First a sidetrack: playing with crow:sketchbook-4th-march

How to proceed:



I think I prefer the standing figure, though some adjustments to the ‘arms’ needs to take place, but this I can do when transferring the idea to the cloth before stitching.   The cauldron I shall work separately and appliqué to the cloth.

Looking at this again now I think I want to explore her pose more fully – try different options – standing definitely – but arms may be extended……don’t know yet.

    awesome crow! but I am biased!

    Yeah – wool in the microwave with food coloring and vinegar, piece of cake.

    Good to see your notes, so pleased this is helping you decide what to do next! Love that crow 🙂 And the figure with the cauldron is lovely. Perhaps she could be putting something in the cauldron? Or stirring it? Although I’m sure you’ll come up with much better ideas 🙂

    It is great to see your working method. Very personal so thank you for sharing.

    I like the standing figure too and I like the idea of her arms outstretched. I would get the idea she is incanting something.

    Love that crow ;0)
