Tag: Matisse’s Chair

finished tapestry

This tapestry was undertaken just as a sample piece of blending and paint effects. It is of a detail of a picture by Matisse that I have had on my wall for years ( a wedding present ) and I always thought ‘I wonder if I could weave that bit’, it’s full of brush marks and runny paint and very slapdash…quite the way I like things! Anyway I have learnt so much about blending and colour  it was worth the effort, despite my families question of ‘what exactly is it?’
