French Art

Inspiration from Lucien Pissaro - who painted in 1893 Les Dindons - the Turkeys

I thought that the method of heavy oil painting could be a method for making a modern textile landscape - I was particularly thinking of the texture of the foliage in the trees - many different colours which could be pieces of fabric with stitch - here is a start:-
This is a selection of fabrics in similar colours to those in the painting, placed on hand printed fabric. dh


  1. What a lovely starting point,will wait with interest to see how this develops.


  2. I've always loved Pissarro's colours, and I agree that his paintings lend themselves to textile interpretation - is this a case of "watch this space"?

    1. Yes - but don't hold your breath!
