Inspired by Allie (in stitches) I had a go at a seascape. I started by laying down a blue shaded silk and covering it with a white organza and then blues pinks and white in Merino wool topps for the sky, I found a blue organza to cover the silk on the sea area and added wool topps and various white fibres for the waves. The beach stumped me so in the end I used a sandy coloured cotton, embellished it lightly and added fibres for seaweed and drift wood etc , also some beads for shells.The horizon I originally stitched in but it cut the picture in half so I put a fine watercolour line in. I am pleased with the result and feel that it looks better from a distance. - might even frame it.
