My first attempt at thread painting on a larger scale and now I am hooked on the method. I can't wait to try something in colors.
Isn't thread painting great! So much fun, and freeing and opens the world wide up to what you can artistically interpret!
I think your schnauzers thread painting is lovely and for your first attempt - wow! Look forward to seeing your next one. I haven't really done any thread painting but have been wanting to have a go for a while now so after seeing what you have done - you have given me inspiration but I am not sure how to get started. Did you trace out the outline of the schnauzers on to the material and then use freehand embroidery on your sewing machine? Dianne
That is really well done!
Wow- I love your thread painting of the Schnauzers! Schnauzers are my favorite breed of dogs and I think you did a great job!
Thank you for your feedback ! My next attempt will be profiles/silhouettes of two children.
Quine- to answer your question, it is free-motion stitching, using a basic straight stitch. And I referred to several pencil sketches from the internet and clip art for the shading
