I’ve been working on the challenge on and off for a couple of months. My first impulse was to chose his Blue Vertigo.
I used some black pencil roving in the middle, a black background underneath in the center of the piece to help shadow the reflection in the pond and some mulberry silk for a reflective effect. Unfortunately, the purple wasn’t as obvious in mine after felting.
The background is black prefelt and with a white center of merino over cotton batting and some of the radiating lines with different colored roving. The carvings weren’t as wide, but I like the effect.
I enjoyed the challenge and the variety of techniques I was able to use to achieve the different effects. Have you done the challenge yet?
