Both Sides of the Pond

In Barcelona, Neki Desu blogged about a wonderful weaving of a lily pond. Here in California, I have been working on a photo from the Montana vacation, with the idea of weaving it on the jacquard loom when it arrives. (Can you tell I'm getting impatient about that arrival?)

Here's the original photo:

And here it is, manipulated somewhat and indexed to 6 shades of green and 2 shades of blue.

I'm thinking of a 7-end weft-backed satin base structure, with a black warp, one green weft for the shaded satin plus two blue wefts. The two blues will probably be made of multiple finer yarns twisted together, to give an even more "watery" effect.

Just goes to show that great minds think alike!
