Dieppe diptych

Well I have started a new little diptych based on a sketch made from our holiday flat in Dieppe France. I have made two little bespoke stretchers with a little help it has to be said! Then I stretched the very last of the canvas from dad over them and dyed the canvas in Pebeo dye before beginning to stitch. I will then size the canvas and add oil-bar to selected areas. I’m really excited that I can make bespoke stretchers with the clamps I was given as part of my Christmas pressie! Watch this space for progress. My last little diptych has been selected for a show in Halifax in March under the title ‘Landscape and Seascape’ . I will let you know more in future blog posts!,
