In the Hoop With Fric de Mentol

We have long been a fan of the work by Portuguese artist Ana Raimundo, aka Fric de Mentol, so we're delighted to share a peek at what is currently in her hoop.

In the Hoop with Fric De Mentol
Twig Couple is the artwork I have in progress in the hoop. Representing a domestic scene, a portrait of a woman and a man, personifying their connection and relation in a tree that grows healthy twigs.

The couple was originally sketched and watercolored, then drawn in black and white to get a more graphic composition with the patterns and lines inspired in natural elements. Finally the drawing was reproduced on linen with screenprint
and it will be happily colored with threads.

What are you stitching? Please share in the &Stitches Flickr group. We'd love to see it!
