Why Counted Tapestry?
Tapestries can be delightful pictures - but when you want real
detail and life-like features,
you can't go past counted, sepia
tone tapestries created by award-winning artist
It all began for Malcolm as a hobby. Now, having won state and
national awards for his outstanding
tapestries, Malcolm has brought his art-form into the homes and
lives of everyday men & women.
There are numerous tapestries available for hobbyists to do - mostly
printed onto canvas backing sheets - in several different colours. Whilst
they are fun to do and produce a nice picture, they generally lack
the subtleties of colour shades, light, shadow and depth,
and can be inaccurately represented or interpreted.
|However, Malcolm has found that for accuracy, detail,
light and shade, expressions and other features - either the striking
or the more subtle - nothing compares with counted tapestry,
and in particular, with the sepia tones
he has become famous for.
The use of up to 18 shades of one colour (brown) enables Malcolm's
tapestries to achieve a life-like quality,
with a three dimensional appearance rarely
seen in tapestries.
The great news is that you, too can do Malcolm's
counted tapestries - all you need to be able to do is count and stitch!
