Glacier flow lines

This is my first sample completed.

A picture of glacier flow

My sketch
My sewn sample.

This image is an example of sharp, parallel lines creating the illusion of fuzzy, uneven curved lines, it creates a texture reminiscent of taffeta.  In my sample, the lines create several art elements.   Firstly, the smaller, parallel lines create the illusion of larger, undulating lines, as well as the shape of the uneven lines.  The lines themselves create a texture.  Overall, the main principle in this work is the movement created by the lines.
