Fourth Quarter Challenge 2019 Colourscapes

This challenge is inspired by our trip to Mottisfont Abbey where Kaffe Fassett exhibited over 70 glorious items including furniture fabric, clothing and wall hangings.

“I create in palettes of colour because that is my main obsession.” Kaffe Fassett

We were allowed to take photographs of Kaffe’s work at the exhibition – this is one of his wall hangings …

So this quarter’s challenge is to make a “colourscape” using whatever fibre media you enjoy working with.  It can be realistic or abstract and any shape or form.

Go wild with this challenge and be as free as you like!

We often use our photos to inspire us, so we’d like to share some with you.

… and at this time of year, in some parts of the world, the trees and shrubs will be giving a wonderful display of colour!

We hope that you enjoy this challenge and that it brightens this quarter of the year.

      There are some wonderful colours in your current piece of knitting Cathy – a colourscape if ever there was! Please do post the finished piece.

  2. I think this will be fun. I had expected skyscape for some reason. I like this better. I have my 3rd quarter challenge underway. Better late than never. :O)

      We were going to do skyscape Ann! But we like to keep everyone on their toes and we thought this would be fun.

      Annie is still working on her cityscape so you’re not the only one.

    What a wonderful idea for the last challenge. I too was thinking sky so you are keeping us on our toes 🙂 I love all your colorful photos, such a lot of inspiration there.

  4. Antje says:

    Love the inspiring photos Lyn, you are definitely keeping us all on our toes.

    • annielynrosie says:

      Thank you Antje – all but one of the photos were taken by Annie – her camera is rarely idle and she must have over a million inspirational photos by now!

    • annielynrosie says:

      A sunset would indeed make a great colourscape Jan, as would the autumnal trees. We’d love to see what you could come up with.

We love comments and love to hear your opinions. Thanks for stopping by.
