Expressive Portraits

What fun we had today, Vinny had us practicing our drawing flow to the sounds of the nineties house music ! It worked but we did decide it would be better with alcohol - tut tut. So we practiced our flow which once on paper resembled a small childs piece of art, however, it did help us relax and so this was proceeded by drawing someone opposite you in the class ! Well that was even more fun, again they did resemble something from school but we then covered this with fabric and started tracing the picture onto the fabric with freehand machine sewing in black thread. The effect was amazing. So this is the start of a new project, once we finished the machine stitching we will be adding fabric and embellishments etc. Watch this space for the final reveal !
