Here's the loom with the leashes installed:
Here are the small tapestries done so far. All have been done without cartoon attached, just looking as my sketch as I weave. Each are done with Spelsau as warp, sett at 8 epi. Weft is either 5 strands of Victorian tapestry wool, or one of Spelsau and three of the smaller Victorian wool. Each one has been washed and steam pressed using a slightly damp press cloth.
Today's drawing, done on a sheet I'd painted with Georgia red clay yesterday then made quick gestures of tree trunks. Today I continued the drawing with pastels-- it rained on the drawing as I was making it-- fine with me to let nature take over. Later I photographed it with the iPad and further manipulated the drawing with the SketchBook express app. Very interesting to go from natural materials into a digital way of working.
