Here’s my challenge piece, complete. I call it Fragrant Climb.
In a nod to the small flowers near the stairs in the inspiration photo, I drew on additional open-petal ones (above.) I liked the effect and will use it again.
I’m pretty happy with this piece. Especially since I wasn’t that crazy about the inspiration photo. But, then, that’s why it’s called a challenge, right?
I encourage you to view a slide show showing all ten pieces made for this challenge.
