When we visited the GoMA gallery last week there were a group of paintings by Monia Tichacek that really grabbed me. From the distance the paintings just looked like very pretty arrangements of blobs of water colour.
I have no idea why I went in close to have another look, but I was just blown away with the detail that appeared when I did.
Rather like when you put a drop of water under a magnifying glass.
I think it was this painting that made me look again at the others.
It just looked like a watercolour of a rural scene. But when I looked at the detail...
I wonder if I could achieve this in an embroidery?
