I made a lot of progress on flowers over the past 2 days. This one is my favorite. I love the way the pink/green print really connects the flower to the stem.
This was my progress by the end of Saturday.
And by the end of Sunday, I can almost declare this section done. (Just 3 leaves to go)
But there's another weekend worth of leaves to be done on the right 2/3 of the panel.
I don't have Photoshop so my photo splicing is really rough, but this is kind of where I think I'm going. I want some open space in the middle balance out all the vines. I'm considering trying some trapunto. If I extend the vines under the bird to the lower right corner, and same from the circle vine going toward the upper left, I'd end up with a 15" x 30" rectangle in the center.
I'm open to suggestions. What would you do with the center?
