More oak trees!
I thought I'd make a tree on a landscape background fabric that I had in my stash. The fabric was pretty dull for what I wanted though - here it is.
The fabric was from Northcott Silk but I don't remember the name of it anymore. Anyway, you'll notice the rather dull grayed colors, especially in the foreground? After playing around with Inktense Color blocks I decided to paint it. I got out my blues and greens and created this foreground for the landscape.
|The start of my painting - the foreground|
I kept adding more and more paint because as Inktense dries, it gets lighter.
|More and more green and blues|
I was really happy with the way it was looking! I added more green bluffs and I wanted the water and the sky to sort of blend together so it would be hard to tell where one ended and the other started.
And once again, the finished quilt top!
