Since completing the scallop-shell purse ornament, I have been casting about for a new project to begin. The photo of the statue of St. James (Major) from one of the churches early-on during the pilgrimage appealed, but the colors just didn't work out. Not enough contrast inside the actual image, I think.
|As you can see, the statue itself is a study in browns, with a little gold to accent it. It doesn't translate well to beads.|
|Absolutely adorable! But the thin lines just don't go well with beads.|
|There are large masses of color, and lots of contrast, and I think it will translate okay to beads. I hope. This is a really neat picture.|
