This summer I’ve spent several hours learning new weaving skills: Choosing a picture/painting to develop a tapestry, trying a more realistic style, using different textures to interpret things closer or far, something small or big, something smooth or rough. And this is the result, Is about 65 x 65 cms and (like textiles in general) is hard to photograph because it sucks the light.
The next photographs is the painting I used as reference, and myself with the tapestry mid done. I’ve learned to weave for the back of the tapestry, with a mirrow in front.

This piece undergoes volume also cavities and additions. I’m not convinced about the organic aspect … Maybe it’s just my reading of the way. happy August (:
For two weeks the loom has been occupied for this long piece. 9 meters of squares and spontaneous lines, mixing black wool and greenish-pearl linen. Now that is has been washed it’s time for next steps, cut and sew. / Durant dues setmanes el teler ha estat ocupat per aquesta peça tan llarga. 9 metres de quadrats i línies espontànies, barrejant llana en negre i lli verdós-perlat. Ara que ja l’he rentat toca pensar en els següent passos; tallar i cosir.
What do you need to go out? Actually phone, keys, some money and not really much more. Ok, all fits on it.
Good weather. This week has been more creative than productive. It’s ok, I’ve been in a good mood. Just need to compensate. I have the loom full of threads than I have not tied (yet) a lot of printed patterns to try (yes printed, sometimes I buy patterns already done. Yes, I’m lazy), some weird drawings, until a poem about woods, mushrooms and beasts… At least life is fun. Happy weekend!

Fa bon temps i aquesta setmana ha estat més creativa que no pas productiva. Està bé, he estat de bon humor. Només em cal compensar-ho. Tinc el teler ple de fils per lligar (encara) uns de patrons impresos per provar ( si impresos, a vegades els compro ja fets. Si, per mandra), alguns dibuixos extranys i fins i tot un poema sobre boscos, bolets i bèsties… Almenys la vida és divertida. Bon cap de setmana!
