The theme for |EB's masterclass this month is landscape.  Going through my photo's this is the one I decided to start with. It is a picture taken at Mweya - Queen Elisabeth Park in Uganda. There are a couple of other ones I might use as inspiration later, but this one is on for now.

The sketch I made is this one:

For me is sketch is a simple starting point. What I create does not always look like the sketch :-). After several tries out, this is how it looks now:

I am still not certain about the fabrics I used for the mountains. They still look rather heavy. Anyway the rest is ready for the glue stick. For the tree trunks I used original Ugandan bark cloth, the rest is a mixture of my own hand dyed and commercial fabrics.
And as it is Friday, I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's blog. Check out the link and see what other artists have done this week.

When comparing to the original photo, I see why you would question the fabric in the mountains. But I like the strong image it creates. And it brings the mountains closer, balancing the trees in the foreground. I think it works.

Great fabric for the sky, and the tree on the right especially!
