Face #7

What if I reduce it down as simply as possible and just add a few stitches of color to a line drawing?

Not nearly as dramatic as the last one, but may have its place in a quiet corner. This technique was inspired by seeing the back of face #6. I like the looser rambling hand stitches here:

End of my one week challenge already--that went fast! I'm having too much fun to stop, so will continue til I hit a wall.

Thanks! Leigh, the black stitching is free motion machine stitching. I like it for a quick, sketchy look.

the backs often are more fascinating and evocative than the fronts--i still intend to do a piece deliberately this way! Show me yours, i'll show you mine :)
