Sheryl Meech – Series #3 On the Coast Pohutukawa

Pohutukawa ia a coastal tree, I live 2 minutes from the beach and have a wonderful view of Kapiti Island, which I have depicted in this piece.  The san on the West Cost of the North Island is grey and in some places quite stony.



Techniques:  I have used Baby Muslin to show the breaking of the waves.  I also used this for the tree.  I painted this  with two greens and then used French knots to portray the flowers.

    It is a nice and peaceful piece. I like how you used the baby Muslin for the brake of the waves. Your free motion quilting is very good.

  7. Your tree is beautiful as well as your background. Especially how you did the water and the breaking waves.
