Color Studies After Richard Landis - 2002

 

Richard Landis is a brilliant weaver specializing in doubleweave, but you won't find much about him on the web. I found an image of his weaving "12 Tone Study" in the book "The Art Fabric: Mainstream" by Mildred Constantine and Jack Lenor Larsen. This weaving fascinated me, and I wanted to analyze it to see how he was getting all those subtle color variations. I worked out an analysis, but I felt I wouldn't really understand this fabric until I had woven it. I adapted the design from 6 shades each of 2 colors to a 12-hue color wheel.
Then I experimented freely with color in a Saori-style technique on the same warp.
