The 5 span stone bridge at Pakenham is on one of the routes that I can take to get to my cottage. This needle felted landscape was done from a photograph I took last summer and was intended to be in a show entitled Canadian Landmarks. The show was in November and I have now just finished the piece.
Some red roving had been staring at me for days, just asking to be needle felted into a piece.
I learned the technique of making the metal pieces from pop cans in a Hilary Rice workshop.
Colour Personified is a needlefelted piece based on a watercolour (see post here) I did a while ago.
The curly bits are hand spun wool yarns I used to add more texture.
The other 2 pieces were:
Forest Fawn, an applique and part of the OOTB green colour challenge is here.
A few weeks ago I posted a watercolour of a red fox and said that I might do it in felt.
Well I did and here’s the result.
Using the watercolour as a guide certainly helped the process.
Finished 2 small pieces this week for Fibre Fling 5. One is done in cool colours, the other in warm.
Both are needle felted.
I am enjoying playing with colour and texture.
Here is my latest felted piece. It will be mounted on a painted canvas. I haven’t yet decided which colour or colours I’m going to paint it. I have fooled around in Photoshop and have come up with several possible versions.
Which one do you like best?
