Orange Sunset- Quilled Landscape Picture Art

I always wanted to try blending colors in my quilled landscapes and I'm really happy with the result. I have used 3mm strips if 111/2 inches to make the quills.  For the water I used zig-zag quills.blending was done by using a dark and light shade strip to quill the loose coil. Use the same technique for mixing colors as with pencil colors. To lighten do not use white, rather use a lighter shade if the same color family.

  1. What a striking design! I can't even begin to imagine how long it took you to complete it. May I ask how many shades of colors did you use?

    Happy Quilling!

    1. Hi Manuela,

      Try it, its easier than it looks. At least I take much less time than for a floral design. Follow my tute and have a go.Just pick an easy pic for the first one. Paste the quills close so that you can't see the background.

      I used red, red/orange blend,orange,orange,light yellow blend, light yellow for the sky.
      Butter yellow, orange/butter yellow blend for the sun

      Dark/light orange blend, Dark orange, light orange for the water.

      And butter yellow for the reflection of sun on the water.

    1. Thanks Kurlikins. It took me about 8 hours which is far less than what it takes me to quill flowers!! Since you don't need to worry about sizes and symetry quilling landscapes takes me much less time than floral designs!! My nemesis is gumming!! I manage to even get the forceps stuck!!
