Returning to skyscape pictures

I have been working on some free motion machine embroidery, using my photos of the sunset over the city.

I did not include the city buildings, I just wanted to use the clouds and the colours.
I have interpreted them rather freely and have also been influenced by my recent workshop with Meredith Woolnogh (not that she will necessarily see the connection) and my zentange doodling.

Both pieces were based on photos I took.
The first one looks better at a different angle, so it is no longer a sunset piece.

The second one is better as a landscape piece but is in the opposite orientation of the photo with the darkness of the evening being at the bottom. Not to worry, it is BASED ON my photos.
