Nuts - Gum, Hakea, Banskia
I have been drawing some of the nuts and seed pods in my collection and have started a series of textile panels. I have an exhibition coming up next April, yes it's a long way off but with Christmas approaching and overseas visitors etc. time will get away with me, so I wanted to make a start. If I like the ideas as they emerge I'll include some in the exhibition. The pictures here are a sample of what I've been doing so far. After the intial sketch, the drawing is transfered to fabric and stitched. I have used a combination of coloured threads, acrylic paints and guilding creams.
