The Couple - A Sketch



My original thought had been to try to create a nude in his style, but after I saw the sketch (below) I could not get it out of my mind. I did the thread sketch in black thread on two shades on blue tulle to emulate the blue backgrounds he often used, along with a layer of orange tulle as a nod to the oranges often found in the still lifes.
Here is the original sketch.

  3. Helena, I wasn't even aware of this sketch, so thank you for bringing it to my attention - it makes me smile. Lovely little piece of work and forgive yourself for doing less for once, we all do it now and then - you put a lot of thought into the colours of the tulle.

  4. I too didn't find this on any websites depicting Lundstrom's art. Well done for spotting it and creating a delightful sketch with black thread on an interesting background fabric . Our pieces are all so diverse which adds to the richness of each challenge .

  6. Not an easy thing to do to create the effect of a few quick sketch lines and I think you did. So well done.

  7. You interpreted his sketch so well, from drawing to stitching. Well done for setting his sketch onto fabric together with stitch - not that easy to do, so well done on your piece. I really like your background too.

  8. How much sketching do you do on paper - do you think it is easier on paper or on fabric?
