Golden Sunrise, redone
Not happy with the quilted sky, I ripped it out. After steaming out the stitch lines, I used gold metallic thread to tie the sky in a circular pattern emanating from the sun. Difficult to see because of the metallic and the camera's reflection, it does add a small bit of texture, while allowing the atmosphere to just be more as Turner would have done it.
The challenge is to capture the essense of 'Turner's Light.' As I look at it now, I wish my golden thread was not so heavily stitched. However, I just spent the afternoon [and last night] ripping out one quilt; not ready to do another even if it is really small.
This is my third try at this challenge. It is miles better than the other two. However, I now have more ideas to attempt. It seems one painting/quilt always leads to another.
