I just posted my final picture of the January lesson for the teacher to evaluate. The first picture is of the original photo I took while in Sicily. Roman ruins looking through the arch of the tunnel. 2nd is sketch on tracing paper, the 3rd photo is the mockup in hand dyed fabrics and the 4th is the final. You will find two finals.
The teacher suggested placing the floating rock behind the other rocks and trees and by adding a sliver of dark made the rock recess. Also suggested that the third black square be removed and that the quilting in the sky was overpowering. I realized while working through this blog and our class blog that the squares are actually part of the end on the tunnel with the arch so need to add a bit of black to bring them down to earth.
