My latest punch needle project!
My first sketches have a large star in the center of the sunflower~
As I started adding details to the petals the star seemed too prim.
This seed area is more fitting.
You will see my beginning sketch below~
I think of my punch needle works as 'painting with strings'
Same amount of detail as a watercolor painting... only with fibers!
Blue and yellow~
My most favorite pairing!
Here you can see the large star I had sketched from the beginning...
After hanging laundry on the line I walked around the bird feeders
to see if there were any feathers~
A little bit of blue!
A kiss of sunshine!
First colors being added...
Had I kept the petals simple yellow/gold~ I would have been able
to use the initial sketch with the star center.
Perhaps I will try it next time!
So many color variations~
A true palette of beauty!
