I have several new felt pieces to show at the forthcoming ABC Art Trail, all nature inspired.
I am still drawing inspiration from the powerfully restorative hours I spent at Haddon Hall in Spring 2017.
I have just completed my third wet felting embroidery artwork, inspired by the beautiful gardens at Haddon Hall.
This one is a bit more interesting with the addition of some architecture, a theme I am keen to expand upon.
I have found a satisfactory way of framing these pictures now, in a box frame, so the viewer can see lots of texture.
Here’s some of the detail:
I took this picture of tall white flowers in grass in the entrance to Haddon Hall. I think the flowers are yarrow. They are so beautiful – strong plants with such dainty petals.
I tried to capture the complex layers of greens underneath the flowers with many layers of wool in the wet felt.
