1 In Israel / Holyland/ Landscapes/ Works in Progress

Landscape art quilt, continued

This morning I decided the flatness of the sides and the bridge rendered the quilt ineffective. So, back to the drawing board. I worked on the lightness:darkness ratio, (known as color value), on the bridge. I didn’t even tackle the sides of the river though I did remove them…  So here is the current rendition. Sometimes if you take a break from a project, you may realize you do not like parts of it. You can always shift things around and rework them. Don’t give up. Look at the next iteration as a lesson learned. I say this as much for myself as for anyone who may be reading this blog.

Landscape art quilt in 3D

I have laid out the elements in the scene using cotton fabric. It still looks very 2-dimensional because I haven’t added any embellishment or quilting yet. The quilting will bring out the depth in the piece. I will embellish with textiles, such as silk, lace, yarn, tulle and bits of colorful fibers. For now you can make out the basic scene. Compare it to the photo upon which this work is based.
