Turquoise Challenge - Camden Town #3

This landscape in cloth was made just before Helena announced the colour for our challenge. As luck would have it, the turquoise was a good match. This 8.5" x 11" work has already been in three shows!

It has been suggested (Linda F? Lauma?) that the window panes should be darker, and I agree that would have been more effective. I could try to go in with paint or ink, I guess.

Camden Town #3
Here is the image that inspired it. The photo was taken through a window at the back of the Amy Winehouse Museum in Camden, just north of London. Love the rhythm of the windows.

  1. Another of your delightful cameos, Heather. The windows are definitely dancing to a beat!

  3. I think it was me who commented on the darker windows. This is a lovely piece; it's only when you see the same picture in different colour ways that you can see how the different interpretations change the scene. Still love your work, and loved your recent show with a painter doing similar views!

  4. Once again the yellow/lime makes the turquoise sing. Nice colour combo.

  7. Me too, I like it the way it is. I love the way you select details in the photo and bring them to life in the stitching.

  8. i just so love this technique of your heather. using your hand dyes and your own interpretation (inclusions, omissions etc) of photos works so well.
    a great piece

  9. I like it as it is too. For me I'm not sure it would look right with dark windows.
