It has been about six months since I made any felt pieces and last week, I finally managed to pick up my carding combs and make something. The photo above shows the piece in process and I really liked this combination of blues and turquoises and teals, so had to stop to take a photo.
The piece was based on one I had previously made, taking my inspiration from the sea lavender on the marshes at Saltfleetby, on the Lincolnshire coast. The original one was fine but I decided to make the colours a little deeper in this version.
The felted piece, showing how the wool exerts its own influence. The horizon was a bit more dramatic than I would like, but the colours have worked together well and have given the slightly impressionistic effect I was aiming for. Now it needs to have the embroidery added, to give more definition to the sea lavender. That's the next job.
