the Fog is coming in . . .

The end of December I did a blog post about fog. I come form a valley that was perpetually filled with fog for several months from late Fall thru Winter and into early Spring.  My favorite Etsy Team has a monthly challenge and I  participated with that post.  I further challenged myself to do an art piece about fog. 

Just thought you might enjoy an update on the project not finished yet:




I am in process . . . I found a picture that I thought would lend itself to an embroidery design and dove right in.  It involves embroidery floss with subtle shade gradations. I don't know if you can actually see the different gradations in my picture but they are necessary to rightly depict the fog.  This design will obviously be monochromatic in the end, with shades of gray, although there are pale shades of tan also.  Wish me luck on the completed project!

What are you trying that is a new process for you?

What a fun piece. The trees are already starting to come together nicely!

Wow, looking good so far! I wish I had the patience for embroidery. I am trying to use YouTube to promote my blog. It's a new area for me and I get kind of nervous making videos, so it's definitely a challenge.

You're off to a great start. Love the detail on the trees.

How cool! I don't think I've seen any embroidery that features fog, but it sounds like it'll be really interesting when it's done.

Yes, I see the gradations! This is already lovely!
