Helen Hazon – Artist style #3

Inspiration – the landscape paintings of David Hockney and the scenery of the Applecross peninsula in NW Scotland.

For the third quilt in this series I have moved away from the daytime palette and have chosen a sunset.

Applecross village faces West so we often see beautiful sunsets with the mountains of Skye in silhouette.

The photo that I chose was taken by one of my nephews during a family holiday.

I have kept the quilting very simple because the subject is so dramatic.

All fabrics are cotton and stitching is in metallic and cotton.



  1. Love it how you play with this dramatic landscape in Hockney’s manner, well done!
