This yarn painting is a little different. Instead of creating solid yarn-filled shapes, I glued the yarn down leaving an open webbing of matte black to simulate the transparency of deep sea jellyfish. The “bubbles” are a deeper black than the background, made by gluing down a shiny black bead and then wrapping yarn around each one.
