Work in Progress...
Collage and oil pastel sketch for a new project using T-shirt material (October 2019)
Leaves and Pods Cushion Cover
I was a bit stuck on the background colour for this piece, then one of our group suggested blue. My first reaction was that this wouldn't work, but then I found a bit of teal-coloured T-shirt in my stash and it does seem to work very well! Some scraps of other colours have been added to the background for contrast.
The stalk colours in the seed pods on the left (front view) have been changed to shades of purple as they were very dark and the colour too similar to the stalks on the green leaf. They'll be much more visible when I shear off the tops of the loops.
Only the large leaves and a little of the background has been sheared so far (pix on left), so most of the loops are still visible.
