I'm getting ready for my collage quilt class tomorrow night.
I had already done a drawing of what I want to make - a vase of flowers -
but didn't have a warm and fuzzy feeling about what I had drawn.
Today I put more thought into what I'd like to create,
and what kind of flowers I love.
I've always loved the simplicity of carnations and baby's breath,
but they might be a bit too simple.
I really love the drama of anemones, in rich reds and purples,
and gerbera daisies have great potential for a textural piece of fiber art.
I also like the shape of the common alstroemeria, with its graceful petals and twisted leaves.
I've decided that I want to use rich, deep reds and deep purples, with greens and golds,
so I have a bit more planning and sketching to do
before the class!
These are purely sketches, micron pen and colored pencil over a pencil drawing.
I have to come up with a clearly outlined drawing, so I have work to do!!
Hope your day is a good one!!
