For the last 63 days I've been working on the 100 days project. There are quite a few variations of this project going on around the world but this particular version was put forward on Instagram by Ella Luna and The Great Discontent magazine. Basically you take a creative act and repeat it every day for 100 days, it helps you develop ideas, explore your creativity and commit to something concrete.
I came across it in the morning of day 2 and by that afternoon I'd started to create 100 stitched abstract artworks each using 100 stitches. When the project started I'd had an operation a few days before and thought it would be a manageable project to work on over the coming weeks.
I'm applying a vague colour theory to the concept, creating a colour grid using contrasts and blends. The idea initially was to use up wool I already had but that soon went out the window as I need many colours! (perhaps 100?)
I'm enjoying getting to the canvas each day with no idea of my next design, I choose a few colours, start stitching and something emerges, quite different to my usual process of drawing and digital artworking before starting to stitch. I think it will make an interesting piece when it's finished and should contain a lot of ideas to be developed further.
