Thread Tangle from a Photograph

  This past week I did two more thread tangles from the same picture.

The picture is one that I took of my nephew when he was small.

I sketched the picture and then traced it, outlining the areas with a different values.

In my embroidery software, I choose a different colour and pattern for each area.  This allows me to do different versions more easily.

As these tangles originate from a photograph I seem to want to do at least one version in more realistic (but not necessarily accurate) colours.

As the picture is almost square I couldn’t decide whether to do it in portrait or landscape orientation. So I did one of each.
