Observe Colour Scheme
As I progressed through chapters 6 to 9 I concentrated my mind on finding a good colour scheme with which to move forward. I was drawn towards the earthy yellowy mustards and greens contrasted by shades of magenta which presented themselves during the fabric dyeing exercise in chapter 6. The Procion dyed magenta, light magenta, lime green and green coupled with the pomegranate dyed yellowy mustards offered a range of hues and tonal values. I decided that this would be my chosen colour scheme. To supplement the hand dyed fabrics I found a range of fabrics and threads from the dyeing exercises in my certificate course as well as a number of bought fabrics, yarns and threads.
To supplement the range of papers I previously coloured I produced a few thinner papers. I also experimented with some different colours to help me assess my colour scheme.
