As promised a couple of images from my current work. The inspiration is taken from one of Monet's most popular works 'Nympheas bleus -ca 1916-1919'. First I zapped it in paintshop pro until I found an image I liked and then I translated it by thumbnail sketch to produce the image in different colours evoking the various times of year thus allowing me to emulate Monet's idea of exploring the same image in different lights or times of day or year. I then embellished a series of backgrounds with silk tops to give me a base to embroider and this is where I currently am - stitching furiously. Another instalment soon.
