As you know if you’ve been following my blog, I love making felt paintings. I have to say though, my life has been so busy with other projects for a few months, that I haven’t made any for ages.
Recently though, I was asked to make a video tutorial, so here it is. The pics don’t really capture the depths of the blues at the top of the painting, but I think you get the idea.
I had immense fun getting all my wool and silk rovings and searching through my yarn box for just the right variegated and also dimensional yarns, and then even more joy as the little painting came together.
I’m getting used to filming the process, and even the editing is taking less time – still a.g.e.s. – but I’m getting the hang of it, and the rendering and Handbraking and uploading to YouTube with the tags and what-have-you, so people who are searching for a felt picture tutorial, actually discover it!
My desire was to make an attractive picture that was easy to demonstrate, and also copy if someone wants to – without too many intricate materials or steps. I may make a more complex picture later, if I get enough interest. Or I’ll make another one for the love of it, and may even video it as I make it!
Here are some closeups of the details of the simple little Sea Beach picture:
So what next?
I do have a hankering to make another nuno scarf soon though because I want to do some eco-printing on it. I have some rose leaves in the freezer from Valentine’s Day, waiting to be put to good use. Or should I say second use – the first being the expression of love. Ahh, soppy. 😉
