4th Quarter Challenge Part 2
I felted the Prefelt and Fibre paper Suprematist pieces that I showed you last time. I think the pieces shifted a bit, but this is the first one:
It didn’t have much texture after felting and is quite flat. The colours didn’t blend where they overlapped, but the underneath colour migrated through at the edges:
For some reason the burgundy piece was a lot fuzzier on the edges:
I did alter the second coloured one slightly, I noticed all the triangular shapes were pointing in the same direction on the same angle.
This piece was mostly flat too, the only part which isn’t is at the bottom where I used a piece of the white which is thicker/heavier prefelt:
The white piece was far more interesting before felting:
You can see from an angled photo the different textures, colours and shine better:
The different thicknesses are more obvious on the Black and White one:
You can see how shiny the white bamboo is compared to the ‘black’ bamboo from this angle:
I know I’m always complaining about how hard it’s been to get decent photos, but I’d forgotten how small the time frame is at this time of year where I live. I know it’s not a huge deal, no one’s expecting ‘professional’ shots on the blog, but when trying to show fibre comparisons for example, or like this week-white on white, you get massively different results depending on the time of day, or whether someone in the flats opposite opens their window just enough to direct the sun right on to your desk! So, here’s a slide show of comparisons for you of trying to photograph the white piece this week: Too late in the afternoon; Too early in the morning; Just right; Just right until neighbours open the window!
