I used a lot of Stonehenge by Northcott fabrics in this piece which are very textural and come in many shades of browns and grays. I use a little bit of fabric paint to add fine detail to the piece and shading. It was a very fun piece to do. I did each panel separately and then sewed them together with a border between each one. Hope you like it! Below are each of the panels separately.
I had taken photos in this village of many streets and decided these were the best to use. My sky fabric was just perfect and helps to bring out the architecture. Sometimes trying to figure out how to edit your picture is the most difficult part. We have the wrong fabrics or the scene is lacking something. So adding in flowers and taking out electrical boxes and other stuff is necessary! Let your friends know about this piece in Grand Rapids in September! I will be present at the ArtPrize Preview Reception at the City Art Gallery on Friday, Sept. 14 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Hope to see you there!
