Above is a photo of a recently completed piece. It uses both hand-dyed and commercial cotton, and measures 24" x 18".
The photo on which it was based is shown below. I took liberties with the values, textures and colours, as you can see. My goal was to make the door that is to the right of centre the focal point, and I tried to minimize the impact of the chimneys that are central in the composition. Though some texture was achieved through the use of the commercial cotton, it doesn't compare to the luscious textures of Lauma's photo.
