Pork In The Trees

April 23, 2014

 

One of my favorite scenes in “The Lion In Winter” is the argument Katherine Hepburn has with Peter O’Toole which ends with her shouting “There’ll be pork in the trees by morning!” I mention this because I’m planning to base my Progressive tree block project on that scene.

The first collection of fabrics that I chose didn’t quite work, so I went to plan B. The first design I chose didn’t quite work, so I went to plan C.

The first paint treatment I chose was based on a pig cookie cutter. Turns out that was too clunky.

The second treatment used a simple leaf with subtle enhancement from a fine-line green pen. Turns out that was too subtle.

The third treatment uses more colors of paint and bolder enhancement with a medium-line black pen.

I guess my next project is going to be based on Goldilocks and the Three Bears, with the third choice that is just right.

Luck and wisdom!
