Thread painting - blue titmouse

Boredom, and boredom and boredom! Sick of this endless and ugly winter ... here in Ohio spring comes hard .. when trees are already well gemmate and discreetly leave in Romania, the trees here are just waking up.
Until the time come I can enjoy a new and more expected spring I tried a new technique: thread painting .
It was exciting but requires more patience to fill the thread with, but the pleasure is maximum when you start to shape the design : to play various colors and shadows.

I chose a titmouse, a picture from the internet and after which I worked as near as I could..
And here are the stages of work and the final result:

Plictiseala, plictiseala si iar plictiseala! Satula de iarna asta interminabila si urata...aici , in Ohio , primavara vine greu..cand deja pomii sunt bine inmuguriti si discret infrunziti , in romania, aici copacii de-abia se trezesc.
Pana sa vina vremea sa ma pot bucura de o noua si mult asteptata primavara am mai incercat o noua tehnica : pictura cu acul.
Incitanta insa cere multa rabdare sa umpli modelul cu ata ; insa placerea este maxima atunci cand incepi sa conturezi cu acul valorile desenului : sa-i redai diversele culori si umbre.
Mi-am ales un pitigoi , o fotografie de pe internet dupa care am lucrat cat am putut de fidel.
Si iata etapele de lucru si rezultatul final:

Si poza originala
And the original picture

I attached a wooden rod that got balls all wood; the effect is pleasant and can be easily used as a wall hanging. In fact for it was intended...
I have ranged it between four bamboo: a slight attempt to mixed media art.
But about mixed media art I'll talk another time.
Now I return to study because I expect a quite difficult course: law and ethics in medicine...
See you soon!

I-am atasat o nuia din lemn pe care am prins bile tot din lemn ; efectul e placut si poate fi usor folosit ca wall hanging . De fapt aceasta ii era si destinatia...
L-am incadrat intre 4 bete de bambus : o usoara incercare de mixed media art.
Dar despre mixed media art voi vorbi alta data.
Acum ma reintorc la studiu caci ma asteapta un curs neasteptat de greu: lege si etica in medicina..
Pe curand!
