A visiting South African friend gave me a beautiful wire, beaded hoopoe as a gift, which I popped in the downstairs bathroom. Then I went about switching art around in the house, and now the bathroom is distinctly bird flavoured ;)
I have been meaning to put up a roman blind in there, and due to the avian theme, I decided on a bird blind.
I chose a lilac breasted roller, a gorgeous bird you always see in game parks, and I always think of as a quintessentially african bush bird. Foregoing the machine this time, I got out my Inktense.
Joined this FB group to inspire me to record more of what I do. And, as an excuse to procrastinate on sorting and tidying the final room after our move up to the beautiful Midlands ;)
The latest colour prompt....
As my mother and I have been discussing artworks featuring hares, I immediately saw a hare in this palette. And of course some FME had to feature :)
He is stitched using FME, the blobs of organza and rayon were added next, and then a splash of Inktense mixed with textile medium. Poetic licence on his eye colour to fit the palette, and because my little Toby Ragdoll was sitting on the table next to me.
