Black and White Inspired by Picasso

Inspired by Picasso exhibit Black and White

The Museum Fine  Art Houston now has on exhibit Picasso Black and White. Viewing others art can be an inspiration in one’s own work. In this case I chose to design a scarf using three of the colors most seen in this exhibition, black, white, and gray. I also wanted to have a larger scale pattern. The pattern used in weaving this scarf is  a deflected double weave. It is woven using eight harnesses. When the scarf is removed from the loom and washed the yarns will relax and shift or deflect. It will be a while before this is woven off and finished. I’ll post a picture of the completed scarf then. This pattern boldly shows off the monochromatic scheme. Thank you Picasso for the inspiration.
