Amazing how experiences tie together. Last weekend I was in Seattle briefly and visited the Seattle Art Museum. I wanted a chance to view their exhibit, Graphic Masters: Durer, Rembrandt, Goya, Hogwarth, Picasso and A. Crumb, before it closed this coming week. I loved studying the work of artists like Albrecht Durer whose prints were amazingly detailed. Check out the complexity of this portion of The Crucifixion by Durer and how he accomplishes form and texture through simple lines.
When I returned home, as I continued to work on the cottage window, I remembered Durer’s use of lines and focused on both density of line and open space as I completed the quilting.
I am quite pleased with the results and will be happy to include it in the Irish series that I am definitely creating.
Linking to Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Friday so you can check out other artists.
