Bicycle Tire Tracks
I've been experimenting with the bike track to run through the snow in Christmas Morning. I did several sketches of the tires on my husband's bikes. Then I tried three different approaches with felt, paint transfer, stitching and burning to create a fairly realistic image. Here are a couple of samples. I chose the surface I liked best (the upper one) and have decided to do much less burning away of the felt. I'm also going to add a couple of tiny bits of color just to spice it up. It's really important to do a lot of experimentation to be sure that many approaches are considered. These two are fair but not 100% what I want. Should have it by the end of the day!
