Morning! It has been a while since I have posted here, but please remember to add me on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LouiseSwantonTextiles/ as sometimes I post a little bit more there.
It has been a really busy month or two with commissions and getting things prepared for the galleries Christmas exhibition. I am rather ready for a little break to relax and hopefully get some inspiration back to create a new project. Until then I will leave you with some photographs of work I have completed recently.
First some photographs of my current oil painting, it has a lot of work to go to complete. But I am happy about how much progress I have made so far. I am trying to get into the habit of taking before and after photographs so I can easily see the improvement in my own wok and understand how much I have completed in a session.
The next photograph is of a recent comission I have been working on. I have been experimenting with different colours on my free hand embroidery butterfly brooches, using bright blues and purples instead.
