I am working on another colour-block hooking inspired by Ton Schulten’s work. I’ve drawn a one-inch grid on the linen and am hooking the buildings in warm colours and the background in cool. You can see where I’ve had to pull sections out that didn’t work and start again. It is challenging to combine the values and hues into a cohesive piece with the buildings as a focus and the sky and ground as a frame. At this point, I’m not sure if it’s coming together or needs more modification. I’m going to plunge ahead and, if you want to come along, I’ll post again later in the week and we can see where it goes.
