Greetje Hein – Water- A Grey Day at the Lake
Water has a lot of different colors, depending on the weather. From turquoise, blue, green to grey.
When the weather is foggy and grey the water also has a grey color. You can hardly see were water ends and sky begins.
For this quilt I dyed the background fabric around a tube. This worked really well. There where waves in different grey tones.
I cut waves from all kind of transparent materials to create parts with more color into the water.
I machinequilted the whole piece with wavy lines. I used rayon yarn in a few gray tones and silver metallic yarn.
Only in the water the lines cross each other.
A few bushes and windmill suggest the horizon.
