Gaye Alger – Monochromatic – View of an Omani Village
The inspiration for this piece was a photograph of a village in the mountains taken whilst sightseeing.
I chose to work with the colour blue because it’s a colour I normally avoid, preferring to work with turquoise. I used tints, tones and shades (not quite as dark as I had hoped) of hand dyed fabrics.
The appliques were stitched with free motion straight stitch and it was finished with free motion quilting.
