Arlechino

A piece made for the 21st Carrefour Européen du Patchwork 16 - 19 September 2015

My inspiration was a photograph of the Venetian Carnaval.

The background is screen printed onto white fabric. The figure is applied in silk, stitched down and quilted.

Details are emphasized with pens, "Markal" sticks and paint.

Machine quilted with some hand embroidery.

Private collection

82 x 73 cm

Also shown in Prague April 2016
