Well like it or not....winter is approaching so I thought I would stray away from my waterlily scenes and do a winter scene. This will be much more simplistic so stay tuned as it will be a pretty fast composition. Well, that is if I do not get distracted part way through it.
Above is the background....I immediately did not like the slope of the hill in the foreground.
So I fused some more white onto the drop off point and extended it out to the edge. Much better.
Then I quilted it using organic lines....I prefer the quilting to take second place to the composition...the art. So I do not do a lot of fancy machine quilting which I prefer to see on treaditional quilts as opposed to art quilts.
Here is a close up to the quilted surface. Now it is ready for the fun. I always quilt the entire background first. It prevents all the stopping and starting you have to do once all the objects are added and becomes the background canvass for the magic to happen on.
