Hong Kong Junks
This piece was also entered in the Tucson ANG Seminar Exhibit, 2006, and took 2nd Place in the Professional Adaptation category. I adapted this from a painting called "Aube a Hong Kong" by L. Toffoli. I had a lot of fun with this, using a variety of textured stitches. I used Needle Necessities overdyed floss, Watercolors, Anchor & DMC floss. There is quite a variety of stitches, both straight & slanted. The water & reflection are alternating rows of Continental and Slanted Gobelin. The dark blue background is unstitched, it is the Leventine Blue canvas. The light background is T-Stitch, worked partly in pale blue & partly in a sparkly white (I don't remember what the thread is).
