So, the next step is to pick the right colors in the chosen fiber. I do this by referencing the original photo and not the painted version. That way I don’t need to be so careful of the paint colors. The paint provides a guideline for stitching rather than a precise representation.
In addition to checking the colors against the photo, it is important to check that they work well together. Here you can see the greens and browns that I have picked for the project.
