Building a Needlepoint Design

1. Colors and Concept

Choose key colors and express a basic first thought. Thinking of the stitcher, the thumbprint of color; shape from upper right to lower left, the way a stitcher stitches.

2. Creating Motion

Position a different shape (in size and complexity) to balance the first using bright colors at the edges. Begin to create a gesture or motion, capturing the viewer within the image.

3. More Colors and Shapes

Choose a second color to enhance the dominant, similar in tone, using color wheel basics. Stay with warm or cool light. The edge design should push center shapes forward. Complete each edge section to finish if possible. If you’re not sure STOP until it becomes obvious.

4. Reevaluate

Reevaluate the gesture and each section. Are color sections balanced? Everything added now should enhance the flow around the image. Offer the stitcher clarity and stitch variety. You’re stitching with paint. Wait. Walk away.
