This is my latest finished work. It is 28.5 inches wide and 39.5 inches high. I have been playing with different titles and currently considering; "Connected with Colour". Also under consideration is "Connection creates Colour". I would love some input.
This began with a hand-dyed cotton clothe. Many layers of dye applied all over and then layered with brush.
The figures had been hand-embroidery on another piece of hand-dyed cotton. When they were completed, the background no longer seemed to work so I cut them out and added them to this piece. Then I worked in a bit more colour on the background with paint. The suggestion of the apple to the right, and created a bit of darkness in the ground. Eventually I cut off most of the light blue at the top. It seemed a bit distracting.
Looking at the figures from the angle, you can see that there is a bit of three dimensional effect because of the extra layers behind them. I did a bit of hand quilting to direct the bump out. The bums are especially 'juicy'.
The 'end' result
