Isn't it beautiful?
Olisa has stitched over a watercolour background. Different colours of floss spring to the foreground depending which colour they are lying on. The yellow floss demands attention against the purple but recedes against the green. I like the contrast between the repetitive grid and the watercolours blending into each other.
I love Olisa's abstract stitch experiments- each one is so different. The stitched grids would be amazing on their own but with the addition of the painted backgrounds they come alive. I was so pleased that she made one for me!!
