At first I looked for paintings with very little colour in them and I fell for these three wonderful portraits. I decided to incorporate them all by printing them onto fabric, add Heat and Bond then cut them in bits. I selected the bits I wanted to use and made a pleasing arrangement (to me). Fused to a heavily quilted background, then added some machine stitching.
I meant to include no gold, but couldn’t resist, starting with the border.
Had it in my head for a long time, and it turned out exactly as I had hoped.
Now bring on the next challenge!
