A recent post left off with this project in limbo.....After abandoning the original color scheme due to lack of contrast....I decided to go bold with technicolor. Here's the audition process of the trunk/branches.
Each one was secured with hand embroidery. Then as I was beginning to move to the next step of mounting on a canvas covered frame, it became apparent my math skills once again failed me....NOT a surprise to me BTW! This necessitated figuring out another finishing method.
I considered several, including machine stitching with variegated threads as seen above. Close-up it complimented pretty well....but not from a distance. Plan X was required and it's now completed.
