Sea, Sky and Land – Wet Felted Painting – 5.5 x 8 inches
The seascape on the left was dry felted onto a felt base. The seascape on the right is the same piece after wet felting and adding more wool and stitching. This was just a sample piece, but I really like it. Free stitching on my old Sears Kenmore sewing machine (over 30 years old and still kicking!) is a knack and one that requires a lot of practice. I have to say that I didn’t really get to grips with it until I started on the stones. We have pebble beaches where I live to stop erosion.
After wet felting the piece I added a brighter blue to the sea and sky, once dry of course. Then I started in with the free stitching and finished with some French Knots. It looks so much better now. I just need to find an A4 box frame for this and then I can hang it up!
