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

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
