Second of positive/negative feathers

I've gotten well into the second small tapestry using the positive and negative effect.  I reversed the tracing paper cartoon and also reversed the colors... now the feather shape is white and the background black.
Tomorrow, I'll do the same cartoon in a linear way with soumak.  I'm having a good time with this!


Even through these are being woven side-by-side, they're two separate small tapestries, 3" wide x 6" high.

When I look at these tapestries it reminds me of the pictures where depending on where you look you see a duck or a rabbit, or a vase and a face. If I look the right way I see light feather dark feather on the same tapestry not just between the tapestries. Very beautiful.

Thanks,
