Sunflower Textile Art

 So sad the sunflowers are over for the season. This may be one of the last art pieces of sunflowers until next summer.
This piece was dyed twice as after washing the first time, the piece seemed too light. Although redyeing can seem a pain, it really creates greater depth in pieces. Also, note the use of an analogous colour scheme. The yellow, green and blue with the blue being more a green-blue creates harmony within the piece.
If you are looking for an inspiring book on colour, Nita Leland's book 'Confident Color' (www.nitaleland.com) does not dissappoint!

A lovely piece, Eileen, and will keep the new owner remembering a lovely summer for a long time. I just love the combination of dying and stitching!
