This is from a photograph I took this year whilst on a tour of northern Holland. In Delft we climbed the spire of a church and could see the town laid out below us. Throughout the town (and, indeed, throughout Holland) we could see canals of varying sizes, surrounded by trees and cobbled streets. The water seemed the perfect colour for out latest challenge!
I've not quilted the water very much (as you can tell)- and I can't decide if this was the right decision or not. What do you think? There was a lot of weeds and shadows on the surface of the water, but I am trying not to be too literal in my translation of photos onto fabric.
