Photographic images to stimulate your ideas for Textile art.

 

For my students coming to Costa Rica with me in January, these are the sort of things that we will be looking at to create Texture.

What do you see? Do you have words to describe these moving shapes in the water?

Find a description  that appeals to you. Then it would be interesting to compare that description with others viewing the same thing, rarely do two people come up with the same description during the creative process.

How would you represent them in fabric.

These photos haven’t been changed, they are just as I see them, but they bring about a great excitement for me.

Knots offer us a visually stimulating stitch design. This has great symbolic meaning. Knots are an intrigue part of Textile Art. In this image we have several interwoven knots.

Interlacing, and visually stunning. The colors are complimentary and I wonder how you would use these images to create a pattern?
