There is a particular elegance to the waves that curve into Whitesands Bay. They seem to weave together in a stately dance. In this textile collage I describe the interacting forms in hand-dyed, light reflective fabrics that shift and change like the sea.
The Queen Anne's Lace is taking form, a combination of satin and velvet.
This design is for a commission 4 feet x 3 ft.
Green Waves Gwenver is near completion, with granite cliffs rising above the pounding sea.
In this video you can see the collage come together in all its saturated colour. Light and shadow move across the olive grove, shifting and changing as you walk past.
A long and stormy week to focus on green waves.
A real achievement, I finally have the correct street location on Google. I AM ON THE MAP. So if any of you want to come and visit, there is a chance Google will now lead you to my door. https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/115495272887426844352/+Amandarichardsonart...
Subdued shades of green satin are being woven together to create the feel of breaking waves.
The dye-work has begun for my new textile collage of waves. Here are both the paper onto which dyes were painted, and the fabric to which the dyes were transferred. There is a real shift in colours, and calculating this is always a challenge.
I have just finished Red Anemones in Olive Grove and have captured the saturated colour and warm sunshine I so craved at mid-winter. If you are suffering winter blues I hope it warms you too. http://amandarichardsonartist.com/content/red-anemones-olive-grove
