For our new lesson we get a chance to focus on color and the mood it sets in our quilt.
I did three environmental sketches to send off to EB.
The first are wind turbines seen from their perspective. I took this sketch from a photo, but E had issues with it. She did not like the horizon line or the blade that comes from the right to the left across the sketch. I would create this one in blues and greens to set the mood.
The second sketch was of corroded metal drums. The drums contain waste from fracking. The photo is one that I modified in Photoshop to create a color scheme of mainly purple with yellows, teals, browns thrown in. My idea here was to make it beautiful and jewel tone like from a distance and then when you get close you see that it is not good to have leaking drums of hazardous materials. I think this one would be fun to create all that texture in fabrics. E liked this sketch.
My third sketch is of a fracking well. I modified the photo in Photoshop to have a green sky. This then gave a rig of pinks, reds, and purples. My idea was to show with the weird sky color that fracking is not good for the environment. This was the sketch that E liked the best.
Here are her comments about this one:
“very interesting sketch with the human beings dwarfed by the machinery...good proposal for the color scheme..and with its bold diagonals would actually work well with all your turbine quilts....might be worth thinking about!!! Of the three I find this one the most graphically interesting with the contrast of sharp diagonal lines and rounded humans.....and again a good thoughtful color scheme proposed...”
So now it is time to make a decision of which one I am going to do. I am leaning toward the 3rd one for now since she liked it the best, but someday I think I would like to make the other two. I will start to look at fabric today. Sometimes fabric dictates what to do.
What do you think?
