New work on paper

Here is my latest work on paper.  It's a bit of a mixed media piece incorporating aquarellable chalk pastel pencils, fine liner and hand embroidery.  The paper I have used is a 375 gsm cotton rag paper with a rough surface.  I attached a light weight fusible interfacing on the back of the paper to give extra support and prevent tearing.  As you can see the topic is hexagons.  I have spent some time learning to draw sacred geometry patterns, but have not yet had an opportunity to integrate them into my work, at least not before this.  The embroidered figure in the centre is a "microorganism" of my own imagining.
