Cindy Richard – Series #3 – Complementary
My cat Stripes has now come to life as a collage portrait. I created her from complementary colors: Purple and Yellow, which was the goal of this challenge. This collage technique actually focuses on value more than on color. By playing with value you can get dimension in the work. I especially like how the eyes turn out with this technique. Who would have thought a purple cat could look so lifelike! The fabrics are fused in place and then quilted.
Materials: Cotton fabrics, cotton and polyester thread, steam-a-steam 2, cotton batting.
