Landscape 2

I made another attempt on a landscape using applique/collage. This is a fun medium to work with... but I am running out of colours !



The picture I used as a guide this time is a painting I came across in 'American Art Review' magazine.


I pasted the completed piece on a 8x10 canvas.


I am giving this away to a friend's daughter who is celebrating her birthday at the end of the month. I hope she will like it.

Applique - tote bag

I made a tote with the same pattern few months ago; you can see it here


The material I used for applique are from my bag of remnants ( I think it is batik,) and rest is from a thrift store.








I will be mailing this to a dear friend of mine who is an artist. Hope she will like it.

Thank you for stopping by,

Until next time,

Experimental Landscape

Feels like autumn 

This is an experimental piece I did inspired by the this painting that I saw in the 'InternationalArtist.com' magazine.


As I would do with the painting, I tried to build the landscape adding layers of fabric. I have not used any kind adhesive to hold the fabric. I cut the shapes and held them with pins first and then ran the running stitch. I tried my best to make the stitches even as possible.


First I added the background colours;



Then middle ground layers; such as the trees,leaves





Finally the foreground. I did use the running stitch as the main stitch and some back stitch as well, also tried my hand doing some french knots for extra texture.




I do like the warm colours and the rustic feel of it but is it an applique or a collage??

Thank you for stopping by,

Until next time,
