|Complementary Cups, each square 3" wide|
I found this dear old favorite of mine in one of my boxes. I've been interested in the special relationship of complementary colors ever since I learned the yarn dyeing process sometime in the early 1990's.
This summer I'm dyeing up a batch of each of the big 3 complement pairs and bringing them to Sievers School of Fiber Arts for a 4 day workshop on landscape weaving. Sievers, around since the 1970's is located on Washington Island on Lake Michigan and a pretty special landscape it is.
This was a fabulous view of the lake from Schoolhouse Beach, early in the morning before my class two years ago. When I came home I worked with orange and blue complements to create the interpretation below. To me it evokes the feeling of calm I had in that place.
|about 9" wide, 10 epi...I put myself at the bottom|
In the winter months I imagined more landscapes from my baskets of complements, this time thinking more simply with bands of colors.
|These were all woven on the same warp, 3 1/2" wide, 8 epi|
And you can tell I did this one during frozen January...
|I wanted to weave a new sample 'on the vertical'|
