I spent several hours yesterday working on the thread painting on Black Rock Beach – the sky, the distant shore, the black rocks point, the water near the shore.
I closely stitched the Black Rock Point
Then I worked my way toward the foreground
Standing back from it I can see the curvature of the waves is jarring. The piece would feel more calm were I to straighten out the water movement. That’s a challenge – because I’m not sure I won’t be left with stitch marks I won’t be able to eliminate once I’ve taken that stitching out.
However, I’m going to give it a try because I’m not happy with how the water near the rocky beach is flowing.
