Greetje Hein – Architecture – I love Holland
Holland has a rich history in architecture. Especially the canal houses in Amsterdam are very famous for their different roof shapes.
The roof shapes are my inspiration for this “architecture” theme.
I painted “rectangles” on a white fabric. I used watercolor paint on wet fabric. For the different roof shapes I made a few stencils from freezer paper. These stencils were ironed on top of the rectangles. With paintsticks I colored the roof shapes on the fabric. To create houses I stitched just the outlines of each house. Because the watercolor look I did not want the houses look realistic, I just “sketched” them. I also quilted some windows and doors. All the quilting is free motion. Some windows I colored with inktense pencils.
