Hi everyone. I've been off grid for a while due to a family bereavement, but I was still working on some things over summer. I was asked by a friend to do something Scottish so, as I love thistles, I thought I'd try some wet felt/ needle felt pictures.
This is my first attempt, which I thought was ok, but the thistles weren't distinct enough.
Sorry if the pictures aren't great. I find taking photos of them quite difficult.
I agree that it probably is a good time to start thinking Christmas as coming up with ideas and creating them takes time.
I love both your thistles paintings, but my heart is with the first one, as I find it dreamy and it feels with more depth to me than the second one. The second one must have been quite a lot of detailed work and is lovely, very rich.
