Jock’s latest, finished last night. It was difficult to photograph because he’s framed it, so there is my camera-wielding shadow and other bits and bobs that shouldn’t be there.
It is great! Just like real… 🙂 unbelievable!
How does one do that? Stunning. Lovely to see your portrait too.
where? what portrait? The portrait of Wei – as all Jock’s work – starts with a photograph, then a line drawing on background fabric, which is slowly filled in with long and short stitch. Shading is accomplished by using 1 thread each of two different silks, gradually changing the intensity of colour.
Your shadow portrait…under glass–heehee. Amazing–I can’t even untangle the threads or thread a needle most days.
Shame about the shadows and reflections, but it is an amazing piece…
