Shadows and Atmospheric Perspective

Leave a comment

Lots of elements come into play when you look at a path or hills in the distance. Paths have shadows along the way that change as the sun rises and sets. Hills in the distance take on a bluish tint, which is called atmospheric perspective. More

Taking the long, windy path…

There is a path in the town where I live in Beit Shemesh, Israel that runs quite a long way. This time of year it is very pretty with lots of blooming, particularly almond blossoms. I was inspired while strolling there and decided to work something up with that path in mind. This is still a work in progress, but it’s a nice beginning, I think.

Along the windy path

I am thinking about how to best quilt it: maybe cobblestones? maybe ridges? I’m not sure. Also I’ve asked my friend Phyllis Cullen what she thinks about the shadows on the path. In a class I took with Phyllis last year, I remember she said the bottom of the path should be darker than the top so the path doesn’t appear to stand up.

More to come! Meanwhile, what do you think?

No time to quilt? How can that be?

I haven’t been able to quilt the last two days. I have been focused on work on the computer. I am combining my website and blog in WordPress. It’s coming along quite nicely but it’s an ambitious endeavor. I’ll write again when I am ready to launch.

At the same time, I am also trying to reach out to people to help them build online shops. It’s not effective to limit sales to our local market, so I have been selling on Etsy. I thought I might be able to help other crafters / artists do the same. I build shops and teach users to maintain their shops.

All this activity is well and good, but when does a person get to quilt? It’s time for me to take a break and create something in fabric.

You know where to find me!
