You Are Being Watched

This fused applique portrait is a bit more complicated than my previous ones.

You are Being Watched

I used 5 fabrics instead of 4 and there were many more pieces to cut out. There were 19 pieces of the pink and 30 pieces of the yellow fabric.  It felt like I was cutting for days!

Once it was all pieced together I realized that the green fabric wasn’t dark enough so I coloured it using Inktense Blocks and a paintbrush. I left the pattern (gold, red, etc) in the fabric untouched.

I used a photograph that I took of a Golden Eagle at the Alberta Birds of Prey Centre in Coaldale, Alberta.
