This is the first textile portrait I made.  I started it in 2013 by thread sketching on cotton. It took a while to figure out what the next step would be.

I added some  raw silk for a hair impression, colored the background a bit  with Inktense blocks. Then  dyed some lace in tea to create the curtainlook, added a few embroidery stitches and mounted it on cinnamon barkcloth.
