Helen Hazon – Artist style #4
Inspiration – the landscape paintings of David Hockney and the scenery of the Applecross peninsula in NW Scotland.
Again I have chosen a photograph of a very recognisable row of trees on the Applecross Estate, very close to the two cottages that my family regularly use for holidays. The trees are huge and beautiful. They frequently shelter animals such as horses and red deer – as well as unfortunate visitors caught in the rain.
The man in the picture is my husband, John, admiring the trees while out for a walk one morning.
The quilt is made from cotton fabrics. I used rayon threads for the embroidery and painted Evolon for the appliqued leaves and John’s figure.
