Here is my landscape as it looks this morning. I have been working on the wattle in the background (lighter colour) in the last couple of days. I now need to get back to working on the branches in the foreground. It is good to see it photographed, it helps with seeing how the colours work.
The other girls in the workshop have also been working on theirs, and so they have advanced since I took these photos at the end of the workshop.
This landscape is from a photo taken in New Zealand. Just behind the foreground grass you can see 2 cows. There are more cows to go in yet. The trees are looking good.
The photo this is based on was taken in South Africa. In the foreground there will be aloe flowers and grass.
This one was taken from a photo in a book - It is an area in South Australia. The colours are beautiful. Most of the background has been achieved with paint, and the light and shadows are amazing. Love the way the tree is looking. This shows how we work - lots of needles and threads of all the different colours to be used on the area being worked on - many shades of a colour to achieve the light and shade effect.
This one is from a photo taken in Scotland. It doesnt appear to have as much work done on it, but there is one of those long fleeced sheeep to go in the green section in the middle foreground, and the sheep has been worked separately and will be appliqued on. The sheep took a lot of class time to work on.
