rust & things

I used this charcoal drawing as a start for the fabric piece seen here. The fabric had been rusted first and then layered with a charcoal sketch. Whats exciting about charcoal is that it doesnt all wash out so it becomes inherent to the piece.

In the piece there is a beautiful italian fabric that was given to me by an embroiderer.

The piece is worked with stitch to create a texture and background.
