The first finished project is the textile painting in the picture. The inspiration for this painting came from a sketch of Vincent van Gogh. For information in this very special man you can click here. What this site doesn't tell is that he is born in a neighbouring village of my hometown and therefore is a bit more special to me.
The leafs are made of handdyed, handspun linen thread which gives the leafs a special texture.
The branch is made out of very fine cotton in different colours.
The background is knitted in 100% wool out of Peru.
Ofcourse this textile painting doesn't come even close to Vincent's beautiful drawing but helped me to create a new piece in which the different colours and texture of a tree have come to life.
Have a wonderful start of the week.
