Sea and shore
'I must go down to the seas again....' to sit, look and absorb up close, in detail, to capture the vast expanse and ever moving swell of the sea.
Fabric, paper, paint and stitch on a canvas support
51cm x 61cm
A piece inspired by looking up close in detail at the sea as waves wash ashore in an ever moving swell. Worked in layers on a muslin background with paper, fibres and threads. Stitch with free machine embroidery, a layer of stitch is worked on aqua bond and then applied with stitch to the surface of the canvas with hand stitch.
