Day 7 - Mixed Media: Sewing Machine

Today's painting is on heavy watercolour paper, has some scrim and modeling paste through stencils before layers of paint are applied.  I drew on some tree shapes and finished it off with machine-sewed lines at the bottom.

Beautiful! How long did it take you to paint this painting from scratch? Looks like a complicated process with all different materials etc.

It has taken quite a few days, Andersson Blue. I was forced to put it aside until I could get the sewing machine set up. The final finishing touches took just an hour or so!

The addition of the thread lines to this adds a fascinating element setting a key for the launch of the viewer's exploration.

Thanks Mick, it is very interesting to think outside the box and can occasionally be quite rewarding!
