Thread "Painting"

These are some samples that I'll be taking to a upcoming class. It's both a monochrome and Sepia toned thread painting of "Maggie". Maggie is the daughter of a good friend. This was very fun to do. The monochrome is much easier to do than the Sepia toned. Maggie has a fair complexion. Lighter toned faces are more difficult to work with (my experience) due to the more subtile shading on their face. I'm working to try and perfect my process and see what hints and tips I might be able to find for students.

Your thread painting is incredible. I had to click to enlarge to see that it was thread painted, as I thought they were just the photos you were working from. I also like the border on the sepia toned one.
