Mitre Peak landscape quilt

At quilt encounter 2009 I enrolled in a painted landscape class with Gloria Loughman. My project was based on a photo of Mitre Peak which is in Milford Sound, New Zealand. It is a much photographed NZ scene and one I have always admired so when the opportunity arose to do this workshop I chose this for my landscape. The sky and water were composed of painted, cut and pieced fabric. The lupins in the foreground were very bright so I covered the bottom part of the quilt up to the water with mauve colored net to give a subdued effect more suited to go with the evening sky. I have called this quilt "Mitre Peak at Dusk".
Regards Elizabeth.
