As the seasons shift to autumn and long days of summer become shortened by shadows, the trees take up the mantle of infusing the landscape with their own internal light source. Every year I look forward to seeing them glowing like candles on the hillside in the evening sun.
I love the texture in this batik fabric, but the color is too bright to showcase my glowing trees....so time to get out the soft body acrylic! (I love this for fabric as it doesn't change the hand of the fabric like normal acrylic paint does.)
After cutting out the tree line I wanted to focus on, it's now time to stitch it in place on the background.
