Part one of this watercolour techniques class was to paint some trees [using branches of prunus as our models]. Part two, which I haven't started, is to fill the negative spaces [background] with pattern. So, I used this as a pattern for my little quilt and filled the negative spaces with quilting, as in the black and white picture. And now I'll go back to my painting and add the background! Convoluted!
I'm a little late posting, having just arrived home from three weeks across the ditch in a motorhome on the South Island - what fun, and what a beautiful country.
