Fast Friday Fabric Challenge

Sunrise at the Dock

Size: 20" x 19"


Sunrise at the Dock is my response to a Fast Friday Fabric Challenge to use light and subtle color in the manner of J.M.W. Turner, a 19th century romantic painter who frequently did seascapes, and often centered his work around the sun or moon. When looking at Turner's work, the first thing I thought of was using Angelina fiber, and it shows in the rising sun, the reflection in the water and the clouds in the sky. The dock is a wood-grain fabric in pink, and I put a couple crates on it, with some rocky fabric behind the boxes and across the channel. These were all a bit too dark for my liking, and I used decolorant to bleach them to a lighter shade, which gave the boxes a weathered look. I decided not to use the decolorant on the border pieces of the rocky fabric to pull that forward a bit.
