Embroidery project begun and abandoned due to my inability to find a true greyscale of threads. Hours of work have created a murky polluted area of sky that is not reminiscent of photographic documentation as intended but loaded with new meanings that creep in with the colour. Any recommendations for how to acquire true grey threads in 13+ tones would be appreciated. I am unwilling to dye my own yet.

On occasion I paint, some things come easily with oil paints, blurred edges and smudgy blacks, some things are more difficult. It’s not a medium I preference anymore, it seems to lack the directness of grey leads and fails to engage me. Painting does make the fact that the works are in greyscale more evident, a choice rather than a default.
