Quilled Nature Landscape Painting - Flower Fields

This time its a quilled painting of a nature landscape of a winding path through a field of flowers. You can see the distant trees and hills in the horizon.

Wowww, its 10 days since my last post!! I have had a long break from blogging by my standards!! Been really busy quilling though I have not blogged. This one too was done a long while back.

A picture that I had taken on one of my many tours caught my eye and I thought I would try quilling it. Well I was quite happy with how it turned out.

As you can see it is not layered. though I have used various techniques to depict the various elements.I have also used some metalic paper strips for the path and the far horizon. I have used crimped strips to give texture to the gray hills in the horizon.

It is not easy to explain what I have done, but the basis of this type of quilling is a combination of what I did in Cherry Blossoms and Quilled Tree.  The whole frame is glued directly to the backing like in graphic quilling.

The depth is achieved through the use of color tones and  each element or shape is used like a brush stroke to form the whole just as in a painting. The overall picture is seen when viewed from a few feet away just as in a painting. That is why I call it a quilled painting.

Looking forward to reading your comments.

    1. When I see something that catches my eye I always think of how best I can quill it, so I let it ferment at the back of my mind till I am satisfied with the technique I am going to use. Then the decision is if it is going to be dimensional, the colors and the basic techniques and shapes I am going to use. Once I have figured these basic things out then the quilling itself does not take more than 4 to 8 hours in total.

    1. Wow Suman , that is indeed a wonderful way of looking at it!! It does look more like a pebble covered stream especially with the metalic shine which looks like flowing water.

  10. Chris, you are definitely inspired by the impressionist painters when you create these wonderful landscapes! This doesn't even look like a quilled painting! I absolutely love it!

    You are getting better and better, so keep creating and inspiring!
