grey scale

This year I am participating in Elizabeth Barton's Masterclass. The first assignment was about grey scale. I decided to work with a leaf. From the original picture it evolved like this:

original picture

pencil sketch (top left of the main vein is too wide)

first lay out (main vein too straight, other veins too wide)

second lay out (more tweeking of veins is needed)

final lay out

Now I can remove all the pins and glue down the fabric. Next step will be the quilting. As it is Friday I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday.

I've followed other people taking her masterclass and they have produced some interesting work. I'll follow your progress with interest.

What a fabulous interpretation of an image. Can't wait to see how interpret the interpretation in fabric.

Ik heb een boek van Barton en volgde enkele andere bloggers die haar cursus deden. Het levert zo mooi werk op. Ben benieuwd wat voor moois je gaat maken.
