The face is starting to emerge ...
The light wasn't absolutely perfect ... but you get the idea! I've rotated the pic so you can see the way it's meant to be viewed, even though I'm weaving it on the side ;)
This tapestry is going surprisingly smoothly ... I'm literally taking it one warp at a time, trying to enjoy it rather than stressing over details. And I *am* enjoying it - seriously!! I'm going to try weaving this tapestry throughout the week, since my weekends are taken up with my other TAFE homework.
My next assignment due is regarding themes. We have to design 4 tapestries, and choose one from which to weave a sampler. I am going to stick to the goth theme, since these are designs I may want to weave in the future. I'm going to use a similar process to this tapestry - take some random photos and pixelate the faces and incorporate it into the design.
What are other Tapestry students/artists working on at the moment?
