I got back to some rug hooking today. Just a bit, but it reminded me how much I truly love this craft. A while back I took a painting class to sharpen my color skills and to have some fun. In that class I had done a small still life of an apple wedge. From that painting I hooked this piece.
It is one of my favorite pieces. Ever since I had finished this apple piece I've been wanting to do some more small still life pieces. Today I sketched and hooked a small pear piece. I hooked it entirely from my bin of leftover strips which is so much fun! Looking for the right value and color. A true treasure hunt. I love the challenge of it!
Here's today's pear. Obviously I still have the background to do but the pear is done!
I started a bit on the shadowing of the pear and the ground. I'm thinking of using my favorite color scheme which is a split complement of Yellow-green (the pear) with blue-green (the ground) and then red for the upper background. More later...
