2 years ago we brought a dozen new chicks home
from the local feed store...
Brad was taking them out of the little carrier
and placing the chicks into a heated brooder box.
I managed to get a photo of one of the chicks in his hands.
Again, one of those images that I knew would become
a quilted textile someday...
After some photoshop work on the image,
it is printed out 13 x 19 inches on fabric
Neocolor II Crayon Audition
These are the colors I pulled for the chick
The chick is colored in...
Now I can start on the hands
These crayons are the closest I can get
for a good flesh tone
I colored in the wrinkles on his hands...
Then shaded in the darker areas,
using all 5 crayon colors.
Auditioning crayons for the shirt...
All of the coloring is done at this point...
I can begin painting...
The chick and hands are painted so far...
Here is the image all painted and ready for quilting:
Unfortunately this image doesn't do this piece justice.
The angle of the camera and the lighting is poor.
The image before this one is a better representation of this piece.
I will post an image after it has been quilted...
