I love this painting showing what appears to me to be lace in the shape of a stole or shawl, draped around the shoulders of a very beautiful subject. Painting well depicts this young lady of Edinburgh Society, at the end of the Baroque period, by Scottish Artist Allen Ramsay. I particularly love the colors, nearly like a handful of iridescent shells, of dusty pink and silvery lavender, and of course, the roses! ( See all posts under veils & variations. )
I have just bound off the first prototype of forthcoming lace design, and casting on for a second. Taking a deep breath, and soldiering on!
I love looking at your work and also the links that you post. Enjoyed the Ramsey portrait of his wife. That link also led me to look at the work of Joan Eardley, who I really love and admire. Thanks Laura from London.
Well thank you Laura! xx
I can hardly wait to see your creation!! I’m imagining soft, barely-there mauve perhaps, or maybe antique ivory…….the anticipation is killing me!
I was hoping for a soft nice sort of anticipation, don’t be killed, it might take another few weeks to get through my stack. lol xx
No pressure……softly softly….
