Thread Tangle from a Photograph
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.
