I’m seeing them everywhere.
I liked the colour palette so much I made a little thread-wrapped card, just to preserve the colours for future reference. Together they have such a ‘winter landscape’ feel. Well, it is winter, and it was a landscape, of sorts.
At first I was a little surprised by how much I’m enjoying the linear quality of these tyre prints. I’ve never been aware of being particularly attracted to lines, although I know I like grids – but I see now how much I do like lines, and probably always have done. I like stripes, and lines of text, and the coloured bands that form abstract landscape paintings. I like the way a line can be a stabilising element in a design, and that it can hold other shapes on its surface. Obvious, really. The thought never occurred to me in this form before.
