He still needs clothes, but I have the likeness I wanted. I’m not going for realism. I want my stitchy interpretation.
I’ve been trying to bring more evidence of my medium to my work. I know that a lot of people think I’m showing paintings when they see thumbnails. While stitching the clothing for this portrait, I’ll be doing more of the fancy schmancy needle tricks that set embroidery apart from other art forms. I’m really excited about this.
Anybody have a favorite fill stitch you’d like to share? Please tell me about it in the comments.
