Some cities in the UK have evolved over several centuries so that old and new buildings are often knitted together – this gate is in the city of Salisbury.
Councils invest in sculptures, green spaces, floral displays and bunting to make cities more attractive and some individuals will spend time and money enhancing their own small bit of the city.
Yet all this effort is often spoiled by vandals, litter louts and spray-can yobs who deface walls.
My cityscape is mixed media – I chose not to depict a whole city – just one old city building.
I wet-felted a base from white merino wool, then needle felted the building using black yarns of different thicknesses as shown in the photo below.
The bunting is cut from dupion silk scraps and glued in place, and the graffiti is hand stitched using a thick thread. The finished piece is approx 33 x 23cm (13″ x 9″)
Is anyone else working on a cityscape?
