I stayed up late last night to finish my piece for our "Joy" challenge. I'm really happy I found a piece of SkyDyes fabric to use as the background; it seemed to me to have just the right feel. I chose not to quilt contour lines as many portraiture artists do because I just couldn't get it right. The contours I made looked a bit wonky. To be fair, though, I've never been someone who adds lots of quilting, so perhaps this is more in keeping with my "style". What do you think? Was that a mistake or does it work alright?
I look forward your feedback and comments. I think this is something I'd like to do a bit more of, so your thoughts will be very helpful. Thanks.
