QUICK UPDATE ON MY GRANDFATHER RUG

Like I said, this is a very quick post to show you my progress on my grandfather rug.
I've been agonizing about hooking his face since the photo is really not showing the dimensional side of the face and I had to go  on my gut feelings.

I hooked and if it didn't looked right or not three dimensional enough, I simply reverse hooked ( put out the loops). I still have some tweaking to do but at least, it's looking a bit better.



I Didn't like the darker area on the cheek and tweaked it a bit in the second photo.



At least I have the face hooked and it still need lots of tweaking on the eyes, the mouth and probably somewhere else but I wouldn't know what to change until I study it more.



This is to show how I kept tract of my different values. This is and earlier photo. I labelled my wool colors using  numbers from 1 to 5.

If you want a closer look, just click on the photo to enlarge them.


I'm off to the barn.
Have a great day and stay safe from the major storm that's coming our way.

Thanks for your visit. I so appreciate your comments.
