Water Tower #3

In response to a Challenge from my 12 by the Dozen group, I've used another photo from New York City as inspiration, taken somewhere in Manhattan.

Our challenge was to make an 8.5" x 11" piece, using a particular green. For the windows, I found a scrap of hand-painted cotton, made some years ago, that has a range of greens from blue-green to yellow-green. I figure the exact colour of green must be in there somewhere.

Once again, low-immersion dyeing has provided the mottled fabric for the sky, suggesting cloud formations.

If you'd like to see how others in the group have handled the challenge, please visit our website.
