Kandinsky Would Be Pleased

I used the red channel in Photoshop to print a cartoon of this design for tracing. I darkened some of the lines with a black Micron pen and also added a few extra lines here and there to delineate major colour gradations.

Then I traced it with an HB pencil and my lightbox. That lightbox is the best $50 I’ve ever spent. In an ideal world I would have bought one with a huge surface area but even this little box is a huge help to me.

This is now ready to stitch. I think I’ll probably start with the smaller elements, particularly the “spears” of black/brown and the spears of colour near the middle left.
