For a while I've been trying to think of a theme that I could use occasionally to work on small pieces which I could carry with me. Then I looked at Barbara's post and an idea was born - to take a small detail from a painting and re-create it in stitch. This interests/challenges me on two levels. The first means looking in detail at a painting, noting how the paint is applied and then comparing this over a range of pieces by the same artist. The second challenge is the usual one of interpreting the work in stitch - at least I can make this easier for myself by careful selection!
So here is the first, an easy choice - easy to recognise the artist and easy to interpret in stitch. At some point I've have changed the orientation but this wasn't a conscious decision!
