Needle Felted Portrait of Elaine

        This little portrait is a needle felted project.  I attempted to add a little depth to the surface by including the blue tone in the shadow areas of the face and neck.  I wanted it to look more painterly.

    It certainly is a different material to work with.  Sculptural, and tactile.  The wool fibers are soft, and pliable.  The portrait measures about 6" tall, by 4" at the base.  The side profile measures about 4".  The hairdo is called a French Twist, I believe.  Quite popular in the 1960's.  I call her, Elaine.

              Thanks for stopping in today, hope you have a restful and relaxing weekend coming up!

  1. She's incredible! You're right one the added tones really give her skin depth and cool shadows!
