How are you getting along with this month's Needlequesst theme? Here's the little work I've done so far (busy, as expected, on the Ring Cushion project). The first photo is a black and white version of the Chinese tea crockery I decided to use. The second photo shows it turned into a 'Charcoal and Chalk' sketch with Photoshop elements, which is useful in simplifying the tones in the pots as the red parts are the darkest.
This last shot is the quick charcoal sketch I made myself last night. It isn't too bad for a very quick attempt, but far from accurate!! I won't be really using this sketch to work from as such, but it did help me to appreciate the tonal differences in the pots, although you can't see them too well from my poor shading!!!
So, what about you? How is your work coming along for this month? Or any other Needlequest month. Please leave any relevant links!=)
