The Rough and the Smooth

“The Wool Trug”  #18

Earlier in the year my Mum gave me this lovely trug, thinking it would be just the sort of thing I would like to paint. Mum meant it as a surface for me to paint on, and I’d like to think that in time I will do just that. In the meantime, I have actually painted a picture of the trug. And what else would you put in it but wool?! 😉

After trying to paint the rough texture of the yarn, I turned to the smoothness of shiny beads. Amongst my bits and bobs I found these two bracelets. The morning light cradled them so well that the highlights and shadows it left behind made it seem like there were twice as many bracelets to paint!
