New York City sketch: embroidered!


Just finished embroidering a sketch made when we went up to the Top of the Rock, in New York City. We went there at sundown and saw the wonderful transition from daylight to nighttime. I wanted to convey that in my work and therefore chose a dark blue fabric as a background.

This, of course, posed many difficulties: I used tailor´s chalk for transfering, but it definitely is different from using a pencil. Not only it´s difficult to insert details, it also fades quickly.

Still, choosing an appropriate amount of daylight helped solving these issues and here it is!

It is part of a long-term, sort of mysterious project. Long-term because I take quite a long time doing it; mysterious because I might change my mind in the process and make it something else.

We´ll see!
