Not to worry, took the opportunity to work on the piece for this month ... The Four Seasons. (Based on a song title.)
I had worked on the design and decided to just do it!
I traced the vague outlines of the piece onto the fabric, then laid out the sky, then the ground. All this is supposed to reflect the landscape in the different seasons.
I had noticed that our last winter was extremely green! I don't think I have noticed it being so green in previous winters but maybe I just wasn't looking.
Anyway, I have done winter as very green, summer as brown and the current autumn as a bit greener - but we are in dire need of some rain soon.
I seem to have attached the tree at an angle, so what was a straight on view is now slightly downhill.
It is only an A5 piece, so not very big. (14.8cm x 21cm, or 5.8" x 8.3")
It was a challenge to get my ideas into the small piece but I am reasonably happy with it.
