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.
