I did enjoy this artist's work and had a lot of fun with my interpretation, also the colours are ones I do enjoy. I used quite a lot of metallic thread and gold cord and appliqued the design onto the black background. I thought the fish would be the easy part but after trying out four pieces of fabric I finally hit on the one I liked best, which I think worked well. The whole piece was a lot of trial and error and I finally realised that I could not use too many colours (I had originally started out with blue waves in the bottom right) and halfway through I took those out, replaced them, and used colours that blended rather than stood out. All in all I am happy with my piece. I scanned the top three images which I got my inspiration from and I apologise for the poor quality, but my printer didn't want to give me anything better.
