Practise Piece


Awhile ago I bought Intuitive Color and Design by Jean Wells.
Today I tried the first project which was piecing soft curves. When I had finished the square I thought it needed something else so I inserted the tree shapes since the colors were supposed to indicate earth and sky. The big branch on the left turned out a bit too big so I added another tree. I'm not totally satisfied with it but it was an interesting exercise in color and curved piecing.
I liked it enough to make it into a pillow top.

I like your bright cheerful experimental cushion. The red edging adds a zing. Great to have on show on a dull daay.

I like someone how is willing to have a go at things. I think that your landscape works very well, and it looks lovely finished as a cushion. Well done! I'm impressed.

Very cool! That one little cushion provided you with lots of studies.

Happy weekend, Joyce!
