Challenge


The last part of this weeks course work was to embellish a picture of a photo, my OH took a photo of a daisy field for me so I gave it a go, the actual work is lighter in colour than the photo of it and I think that this sort of picture looks better from a distance, anyway I'll let you all make your own minds up about it.The piece is worked on black felt that has been painted with Lumiere and acrylic paints then felted with pure wool topps, some stitching has been added and embellished over as I didn't like it.

I like it a lot Maureen, it's really evocative.
I think sometimes enlargements on the screen don't do justice to a picture and, as you say, maybe it's better to stand back to really appreciate it rather than give it close scrutiny.
Do the paints show through after the felting is done?
