On a recent trip to Sorrento I did a few charcoal sketches of the view from our balcony.
I find that sketching in monochrome helps me to concentrate of the composition rather than the colour.
When I create a felt picture using these images, it is easier to take into account the emotional and visual impact of alternate colour schemes.
And here is a wall hanging inspired by the colours and textures of Sorrento. It is made from Merino wool, wool roving, Indian cotton lawn fabric, silk fabric, Indian printed polyester fabric. For contrast, I defined the hill by needle felting pieces of cut wool prefelt made from Blue faced Leicester wool.
