Sketches


After making most of my poppies sort of stylized, I thought I would pull one of my photos I took of the poppies in my garden and sketch them.





I am thinking of attempting a more realistic piece of some of the variety of poppies I have in my own garden.  They are bright oranges and I will have to get some additional fabric to have enough petal variations.    It will be a challenge.

I am on my new laptop.  It is FABULOUS!

Beautiful sketches! Looking forward to seeing where this takes you. Poppies are such beautiful vibrant flowers - and your previous quilts were wonderful renditions of them. A challenge to stretch your abilities is a good thing, albeit dauniting too!

Even your sketches are great!

More fabric? Oh, how horrible:):):)

Those will be wonderful to work with. I have tons of photos, lost a lot of my old ones though. I tend to make mine more like folk art though;) Sometimes I do get in that mode and can actually draw, lol.
