Ex 3.2 Translation through tarn – yarn wrap
For some reason my iPad would not let me post photos of the yarn wrap on the previous blog post so I am doing a separate post.
I examined the colours in the Niccolo Possino painting I had selected and created a yarn wrap to reflect the colours, colour relationships and proportion so colour across the painting. The wrap is shown below. I tackled the task by going to my big box of threads and yarns which I have organised into plastic bags of colour families. I have collected the threads/yarns over the last few years. I chose the colour that was closest to a particular colour used in the painting working from right to left from the painting and also right to left on the yarn wrap. I found the exercise interesting and it made you really look at the colours used by the painter and the variations of a colour.
