Well, I jumped into Project Quilting again. I wasn't planning on it, but I was struck by inspiration for the first challenge. Here are the rules for this first project:
*Your inspiration will come from architecture.
*Be sure to include a photo or description of the architectural element(s) that inspired you.
*Your project can be any size or shape.
*Please remember that these projects need to be created during the week of the challenge.
My inspiration was the lighthouse and the black steel bars that run the course of the pier.
Here's what I came up with:
I wanted this to be a bit more 3D, with more shading and such but needed to get the project in in time. My favorite part is the shading I did on the pier. I used a brown color pencil to do this bit. I also used a white color pencil to add a bit of shading to the bars and the lighthouse. This piece measures 10 X 16 inches.
