This is going to be the focal point of a quilt. Thre are times one may not be able to find a focal point in my work, but I usually start out with one.
The woman was painted on fabric, re positioned with photoshop and some degitally added tranparencies. She also has some stenciling around her face. In photo shop I also changed the
intensity of her color. When overlapping the original with smaller sized cut and pastes the effects change, also the edges were blurred, that also gives transparency.
I will show you progress or final result when done.
