I’ve been concentrating on smaller landscape pieces this week – here’s some pics…
These are preparation for ‘Along the Way’ a piece inspired by journeys through Scotland. I love the way houses and farmsteads hunker down amidst the hills. Often the trees look blasted and twisted by the wind and rain, forming shapes that stand out against the skyline as if they are stitching the clouds to the hills.
Here it’s nearly complete but needs those trees to be added in. I’ve added texture with machine and hand stitching using wonderful Oliver Twist threads. The dry stone wall combines stitch with needle felted wool blanket fabric.
And here’s the final piece available now at Etsy
