So Tapies became my Barcelona inspiration, but there is so much more in Barcelona, it is so hard to choose. One of the famous buildings in Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia, a church they started building in 1882, and it is still not finished. So some of that, and some mosaics and some summer colors...
I started with an old cloth, and put a sleeve of a shirt on it. Accidental materials who just happen to be here. Then I used gesso and yellow paint and with a selfmade stencil I applied rectangles in red. (This is seen on my first blog about Barcelona.) Then I did some more stencilling in blue and painted with red and brown. In the right corner I glued a piece of paper from the museum of Antoni Tapies, in pieces like mosaic.On the left I cut off a big piece and put it back on upside down.
I used thin batting and quilted with graded pink-red thread.
In the left corner I made a black cross from black wool.
Alles in het engels deze keer, maar dat begrijpen jullie vast zo ook wel :-)
