Vivid yet Subtle

The Lobelia series is moving right along, and I’m quite pleased with how they’re turning out.  The second (of four) has much the same pattern as the first, with a shift in how the threads interlace, resulting in a far more subtle effect.  In fact, the pattern is nearly invisible, and is inordinately difficult to show in a photograph.  Case in point ~

There’s just the slightest hint of the motifs on the left side of this view; the other shots I took showed pretty much no pattern at all.  I suspect (make that hope) that when it’s off the loom, no longer under tension, washed and ironed, it’ll look more impressive.  Nonetheless, the colors are glorious.

I’ve gotten a good start on the third piece in this series, and it’s looking good — softer weft color, making the overall effect quite different.  Pictures in a day or two.  Hold your breath.
