I have been working in short bursts on the landscape tapestry from our weekend workshop. I made the mistake of looking back at the original photo rather than the collage and ended up trying to do it more realistically. I put in the island and wasn't happy with it. I have taken it out and done it again but it is still more like the photo than the collage.
I decided to just keep going and hope that the weaving around it would change my perception of it.
I am now up to the sky, having put in my interpretation of the collage - which just means that I didn't really do what was on the collage.
I am going to have some problems with the sky. The photo has a clear blue sky, the collage has lots of blue with white torn edges of the paper. Unfortunately, I don't seem to have used much blue in past tapestries. I have lots of whites and greys, some greenish blue and a tiny bit of stronger blue.
What do do about this?? Decisions, decisions. Will I just use what I have, as I have done so far - and that has meant a colour change as I go as I have used up the original colours - or will I get out the blue cones I have and make some colours that will fit my two images better?
