An Exercise in Colour

An Exercise in Colour

It is always interesting to see how different material and colours look when hooked or prodded into a rug.  A piece of material with a big ugly pattern and brash colours can often turn into the most perfect piece of fabric once it is  cut and worked into a foundation, the big pattern and colours are reduced to tiny dots!
Here is an exercise that will help you to understand the colours and material once reduced. 
Choose a design and draw it on to 4 separate pieces of   Hessian about 12”x12” each. ( you are going to hook 4 samples so you probably don’t want to make them too large). If you have enjoyed the exercise you can repeat by prodding 4 samples)

Now choose four different materials in a selection of lights, mediums and dark
Tweeds 
 Pastel 
Primary colours eg. Red, Blue and Yellow
Monochromatic eg. One colour from very light to very dark

You are ready to  hook No 1 with Tweed,  2 with Pastels,  3 with primary and 4 in monochromatic this will give you 4 sample pieces you can refer back to. Keep a sample of materials  and attach to the hooking and prodding or label and keep in a safe place.
