Vermont landscape

Since this is my spring - a grey frozen lake. I decided to make a spring landscape.
I NEED TO SEE GREEN!

So I took out my green batiks - aaaaaaaaah, green :-)

Actually most of the ones in this photo were to dark. I want light springy greens.

First a simple mountain / rolling hills landscape was sketched out full size. Then from the back (reversed) side I traced onto freezer paper and cut out. You can see some hills 8,9 and 10 laying on the sky. Ironed on the back side of batiks and turned under on the top edges. I choose a preprinted sky which I normally don't use but the color was right.

 

Free motion playtime!

Now I need to add "stuff"

I'm thinking a barn and whales tails. There is a place near me here in land locked Vermont that there are two whales tails (sculpture) in a field. It's the coolest thing.

Stay tuned for how this ends up.

It's not over till it's over
