Improvising with the Colors of Winter

Leftover warp on the loom is an opportunity for play and exploration; this week the theme was texture.  I began to work with shades of white, and then switched to gray.  This piece was the result.


It’s not so large, but this experimentation will lead to a larger piece.  This gives you an idea of scale.


I started with shades of white.  Lesson learned: Even though yarn might appear quite white by itself, the shades can look remarkably different when next to each other.


I really loved the working with bands of gray made by texture.


I’m taking a color class, and have a few color-filled projects in the planning state.  But this piece reflects the colors that are prominent in our warmer-than-usual late February landscape.


Now, off to the colorful warp.
