Jackie Roop, a fiber artist from the east coast of Canada, has asked to do a rendition of "Vertigo".
Jackie's medium is traditional rughooking. She has been doing this for many years and thought Paula's piece would make an interesting and challenging subject. This blog will follow Jackie through her process. So far she has printed the image onto Belgian linen which is her preferred foundation to work on and has already started the first two quadrants .
There are several steps to get to this point such as printing the image, tracing the image onto trace-a- pat paper, drawing the picture onto the linen, and then tweaking the lines by adding in elements such as highlights shadows, etc. She is assembling wool colors and textures to be used. That will require a wool hunt for the appropriate values to be used. Here is the mapping of the image that she will use for color values.
We are excited and honored that Jackie wants to use our image. When she has completed the work she will submit it for inclusion in Rug Hooking Magazine
. We wish her luck on her submission.
