I took a photograph of a Berber, sitting on a wall early in the morning
For the wall I used hand dyed cotton and linen for the Berber, as linen is coarser and reflects his coarse woolen coat.
The background is screen printed. After the stitching was done I used white paint with a roller to give the impression of stonework.
Machine stitched, hand stitched into the stone wall. More accents with markal sticks and inktense pencils
A piece made for the Festival of Quilts Birmingham 2013
