Dimensions: 41" x 18"
Fabric pieces: 750
One of the challenges I encountered while working on this picture was trying to create atmospheric perspective with fabric. I ended up solving this problem using progressively lighter fabrics for the mountains and many layers of light blue tulle.
I had also originally designed a fence to come in from the left and disappear down in to the valley. I took it out after assembling the whole picture because I wasn't able to get the fence to disappear correctly (the fabric pieces just got too small), and I felt it ultimately broke up the composition.
Fun fact: The bird depicted is my namesake, so it was fun to finally make a kestrel in fabric.
