Bicycles - a tricky subject, and a bit of a challenge. Casting around for ideas, looking for reference, I came across a sketch which I adapted for the JQ.
All a bit head scratching, what layer goes first etc. As I stitched a feeling of deja vue was getting stronger.
On finishing, I thought of William and a rather fantastic batik he made when at school. It was pretty impressive!
Even more so now. All those gears were a bit of a nightmare.
Well, you might have guessed that it is the same sketch that informed his piece. Very strange, out of all the books in the house, we both chose the same one - with a few years in between.
Will's batik is in the languishing in the back of a wardrobe apparently. When he next visits it is going to be interesting dig it out of it's hiding place and consider the two pieces side by side!
