This is always a great moment, the end of a warp, the cutting...

The weaving...

These are pictures of the weaving from the draft published earlier.
I'm making a series of these. I also use the original photo (colour reduced) and this gives the next result on the loom...

The technical drawing

It's a bidmap, perhaps you can download it and weave it, like I will. If you do so, enjoy it!

'reflections', my new work

Encouraged by the many possitive reactions on my previous work on fb, I imediatly have started a next project. The inspiration comes from a series of photo's from glasstills in our bathroom. I picked this photo:

I used Arahpaint, a open source software (!) running on Linux to adjust the photo to a more abstract design, result

You can see that it is a detail, enlarged en redused in colours...
This image, I brought in to Arahweave and assigned weave structures to. In total there are 18 different colours in the image, this means 12 different weave structures in jacquard weaving.

Again I will do the shadings with 3 colours: black, gray and green.
