A Touch Of Venice - Gondola

The Gondola for the upcoming 'A Touch Of Venice" Exhibition at The Embroiderers Guild Of South Australia is going well.
I still have a couple of pieces to add to it as you can see and then that part of the work is done. After that I am going to make a back drop for it. Here is the first stage of that work.
I am going to draw, paint and embroider the back ground. I had thought of doing that straight onto the cloth but I chickened out and I'm going to draw a pattern on this piece of paper and then take it from there.

I haven't done much in the way of creating original pieces for some time as health problems killed my creative drive. I am improving though and being banned from driving for a few days has given me the impetus to start work on a piece that needs to be finished by the 15th of February.

I do work better with a deadline.
