Tapestry progress today...


We're going to a wedding shortly so my weaving time is cut down today.  But here's progress, so far:



The tapestry is at 10 1/2" into the dark area at the highest point on the left and the natural border below that is about 3" high.  Photographing it to capture the color is hard since both incandescent light and natural light from the window at the left are there.  

The blending of the grays is both a challenge and a joy.  I love the warm and the cool effect of the different grays.  I'm using three strands for each color blend and none of the areas are of solid color... all three yarns in every mixture are different.

Watching the development of this one has been fascinating, from the sketches to the cartoon and beyond. Your mixtures of grays so subtle. I can see that you don't want to tear yourself away from the loom today!

I love the shading and fine details! I will be back to watch it grow.

May I invite you to visit my blog and see the latest tapestry my friend Gudrun has just completed? There is also a link to her previous effort.
