Rebecca Mezoff Tapestry Studio... Color Gradation!
View this email in your browser
I just finished a lively five-day class on color gradation with a great group of tapestry weavers in my studio in Santa Fe, NM. They came here from Oregon, California, and Colorado (and I hope they all make it home tomorrow through the mess that winter has created in the friendly skies this week). They took the 70-some colors of yarn I dyed for them and embarked on some great experiments. Yarn is an amazing thing. Look what you can do with color! Marcia was working on how to create transparency in this example. Here is the finished sample:
And here are the yarns she used for the right side of the exercise:
Until you try it, how would you know that mixing a brown and mauve in the transparent square is what would create the illusion of the peach and purple overlapping?
I am teaching some of this content in a two-day class at Convergence in Rhode Island this summer. Join me!
