More experimental fun

I tried making another print of a tortured photo into a little quilt, about A4 size, and had great fun embelishing it with hand and machine embroidery.                                                                  
                                                       The whole design

The design originated in a photo from a door in a very old village in Hong Kong , a painting of a man in the colours shown and looking very fierce. His face is still in there somewhere, under some of the embroidery.It is intended to be a souvenir for me from a wonderful family visit last December.       
I have finished this one by mounting it in fabric, more as you would a painting, but I am not satisfied with the result of that, so shall remove it and try again sometime. For now I'll rest from it and do something a little different.              

A little more about the trip here -  off-we-go-again
