When I look at thesee, the new one and the one laid alongside it here, (the one I put together first, the one which started this exploration, this new direction) I am thinking the other two, this one and this one need more work. My ideas for these are evolving as I play. The little padded beads here, the puffs, are made form Liberty fabric so this one may be extended with patterning taken from that cloth, a few stitches scattered across the colour perhaps, more hexagon shapes and definitely more squares. I like the orderly nature of the squares, the uniformity.
The use of the watercolour paint is also growing on me. I'm less precise with that, less neat I suppose but somehow it doesn't seem to matter to me, I can live with the less than perfect painting because I can add another focus with embroidery and swatches of cloth making the less than perfect painting less noticeable.
As with the previous compositions my colour matching is not precise....that is deliberate. I don't want to be too hard on myself, to give myself goals which I am liable to fall short of because I will get disheartened and I'm having too much fun to let that happen.
