Black Work

my blackwork, life drawing model was drown in 2001 when I first moved to London. I loved this life drawing as life drawing seemed to be quite similar to fashion illustration. In 3 mins, you need to catch the main line and then you are making a detailed line slowly to make a human form. but always feeling fascinating to catch a line for a pose in a short moment.

To the contrary, this hand embroidery piece was made in 150 hours after I added detailed shading in 2017 when I first started hand embroidery future tutor course.

Blackwork has quite a sketch effect.
