Well, we are almost at the end of January and the end of the ##sketchjanuary Challenge and I have really enjoyed it. For those of you who don’t know, this is a Twitter challenge where you post a sketch that you have done every day during the month of January. Today I posted a picture of a textile sketch I am working on. This is acrylic paint on linen with stitching on top. I am using the stitching in place of drawing. My idea is to translate this technique once I have got used to it to more figurative work like portraits.
