Texture Interpretation

Here you can see my interpretation of the black and white rubbing. I painted the canvas with a diluted solution of India ink and water. I felt that the stitches would not show well against a white background if I were to use white threads. I then made a cartoon from the rubbing, which I placed under the canvas as a guide for stitching. I see I still have a lot to learn about stitching on canvas. This sample is quite warped, as I did not rotate the canvas at the beginning of some the rows. Otherwise, I am quite pleased. Canvas work was well outside my comfort zone.
