Drawing #19
Graphite and pastel

Some more equipment from my sewing days! Love the nice bright colors next to the grey... I used graphite pencil for the bobbins and pastel for the thread. Because  pastel paper has a grainy texture this photo has not come out very looks better in real life! This is a study for an oil  when I do some more thread paintings.


  1. This has brought back some sewing memories! I love the bright colors. I think it would make a great painting.

  2. This is so creative and well done! Can't wait to see the oil, Karen.

  3. Thanks Linda and Chris! I'm hoping to get to the oil painting soon!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments, I love reading them...they keep me inspired!
