I’m posting a few pictures along the way, as I work on my latest art quilt commission. Feel free to look over my shoulder if you’d like to follow my progress along the way. As I mentioned in my last post, this art quilt was commissioned by a psychologist in Australia. The subject she chose was an exotic tree called the Royal Poicaat. It was completely unknown to me, but that was about to change. I scoured the web searching for photos and any details that I could find. What I found was a gorgeous tree.
Looking at so many images of this unfamiliar tree. I wanted to feature some of what I felt were it’s most interesting traits. Rather than doing a whole tree which would not show a large enough view of these traits. I choose instead to show several branches drooping down from the upper right side showing some of it’s curving limbs, amazing flowers and the leaves that looked like fern fronds.
.A few sketches to get a feel for this tree.
