This next quilt is number seven in our photography challenge. The original bride picture is bySteve Bromley of the new port bridge.This is a close up of party of my bridge. Before I show the entire pictureI will show you my first attempt.
At first I liked my bridge idea ,, but the more I looked at the head, not so much. It was way too cartoony. Here is a picture of it. It was very difficult drawing all the lines with thread.
Started with a new background, and instead of drawing all the lines, I thread painted all the areas that were to be black. This was much easier and looked better too. The original triangles on the stomach were to be architectural like the photo. I decided to go a little more organic with curved thread work. I also beaded his eye and around the areas were he is surfacing.
Now for the big reveal!!!
He also has a slight sglitter dust on his chest that you can’t see in the photo.
