My experiments with yarn have been both challenging and amazing. Texture is definitely my new best friend. I really enjoy selecting various yarn colors & weights to create interesting & balanced compositions.
As far as subjects, I have settled on detailed figures or portrait style imagery surrounded by a non-objective (or abstract) background. By bringing some of the background into the figure/focal point, I have been able to tie things together like I was hoping.
My current challenge is within the background. I am trying to decide between the patchwork style (above) or a more linear style (below).
I am considering that I can likely do both or any variation of background composition if I can work with a large enough palette that will allow for enough flow in the work that it could be considered a style.
I guess we will soon see!
