Portrait of a Singer

What are you most proud of? Using materials that I had on hand. I think I captured the overall image, but the face was very difficult to get right, you can't just erase the features, you have to carefully pull out the threads. I hope to create better likenesses as I make more portraits.

You Can Make This

anjade made Portrait of a Singer with:

  • Oval embroidery hoop
  • muslin
  • embroidery floss
