Charcoal and Machine Stitching

These are a series of small charcoal sketches. I have taken sections of a machined embroidery wallhanging and scaled up the size, taken a portion, and then reproduced it in charcoal, paying particular attention to line and texture.

Then I have freely re-interpreted my charcoal sketches in Free machine embroidery. I have restricted the colour scheme to black, gold and for some a touch of blue.
