wing dress project, inching forward
today, i post the progression of
pencil drawings for fabric dye swatch preparation!
before i start messing with fabrics
i make pencil drawing samples to
give myself a little idea on how to proceed
because, you see,
once on the fabric,
you can't really ponder
swift move will ensure you the
nice, clean finish
i can ponder all i want in
every other dept. of my life
(and i would, too)
not while on a fabric dyeing mission
so this is where i left off the last time
warm up with some general shading....
and let it get darker....
....til i kinda feel "done"
another one, also kinda done
what do i mean by "kinda done"?
well, it feels like i need to spice up
something amiss, i say
so i opted for
slightly notching up by
darkenning wider area
hard to see, i know but
it's there, the difference
in a practical sense, with these drawings
i didn't have to go this detailed
but i did, just so i'd feel a bit more encouraged
to endure a still long process ahead
next step: painting on fabric swatches
