This week's challenge was to use African Artist, by Tina-Akua Hunziger. It gave me fits! This is happening more and more as I venture out of my comfort zone with new patterns. And, as usual, when I finally finish and get ready to post, I see the example and think, "Oh. That's how it works!" My problem this week was getting the bands around the threads, and then shading / rounding where they meet. I tried to cover/compensate my lack of proficiency by using metallic Gelli roll pens. Maybe if it's shiny they won't notice!!! Then came the white charcoal and the zenstone. (Zenstone, I love how forgiving you are.) African Artist is a beautiful pattern. I hope I will one day master its rhythms and textures.
Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate and learn from each and every one of your comments.
