intellectual excitement

murasaki top

big time.
after reading this i started thinking. i have a tendency of going  in many directions at once. my problem is that i lack  the proverbial box to think .
this methodology of designing would neatly fit all present ideas in one compartment. the weaving, the look i want for the cloth, the recent dyeing and the colors i'm getting. not to mention the digital works.
can't really ask for more!

i took one of the murasaki colors and treated it following Alice's method and you can see the image. it is much more satisfactory than the one i had previously developed  using a fractal image because the repeat is  less distinctive.
 right, i was able to combine the recent dyeing and future weaving but i uncombined the fractals i had been working with and the future weaving. can't win them all.  that said, the method of working with colors and dithering them or applying noise or blur opens up a new front of  exciting design possibilities.

which one do you like best, the fractal  derived or this new one? pray thee tell.
have to get back to tying knots if i want to weave.

  1. I vote for this one! Seriously, I think it looks fabulous, and I am fascinated by the process. I am also a bit startled by the speed you go at... I read Alice's post about 5 mins ago and there you are already developing the idea!

    Yes, I vote for this one as well.

  3. Okay, bucking the tide here. I actually like the other one because it has more texture, probably a result of the larger plainweave areas. BTW, I LOVE the idea of using the color as the basis for the draft!

  4. if YOU like them both you should weave them both. (i'm ducking.) seriously, how else can you decide?
    and the color, the color--oh my--


interaction appreciated!
