McTavishing---Yet Again!

I promise--this is the last time. I think.

I played with McTavishing again. I'm happier. I could see some of what I was doing wrong in the last one. It is so much fun, just swirling around. It's a practice sandwich, so I don't have to worry about anyone judging the quality of my McTavishing. Except you, dear reader.


So here are some pictures of my latest attempts:


These two (above) I did on March 28. Nice and swirly, spacing better.
The three below, I did on March 31. What looks like a bright chartreuse in my computer screen is really a soft yellow. 




So I'll link this up to Amy's Free Motion Adventure's McTavishing Mondays for my final time. So sad to say adieu to this activity to increase our McTavishing skills. It doesn't mean that I will not continue on my own.

Thanks,
Lin

I've read about this technique and I think you are definitely getting the hang of it, your swirling is awesome...I don't have the patience!

Very interesting work Lin! I love to see McTavishing and need to practice more myself. That reminds me to pull out my book on it later this week... :-) Well done!
