Coloured teasels

I've been doing lots more experimenting in my sketch book - today applying some colour to my teasel forms - both to the stalk tracings and to the teasel heads. 

First are two versions of the teasel stalks, one flipped over to make a possible pattern repeat ...

... and the other flipped over and rotated through 180 * ...

Then there is the teasel head itself  - colouring it seems to make it even more spider-like than ever ...

Then tomorrow, there should be some time to experiment with stitch before I take an enforced break and a change of task.

    1. Thanks very much for commenting - and for the encouragement. It is always good to hear from people.

  2. These are looking great! I especially like the first one...the gray and yellow are scrumptious together!

    1. Very many thanks for your comments as usual. I've been away on holiday in France with my family - mostly away from wi-fi connection - and have only just found your comment. Normal blogging will resume this weekend!
