These are my second attempt at photo fabrication. This all started when Penny, my co-group leader announced the portrait challenge, ‘self portraits’.People came up with mind blowing portraits.
From there on wards I started experimenting with them,took class on portrait sketching , which helped me in understanding the proportions of the face, and as a thumb rule, as in the words of Paramjeet, the award winning quilter of ‘Dust Storm’, I want to be stubbornly original. So I used the photographs I have taken and produced these two quilts. My aim was to produce some thing very near to the real photographs.I think I did achieve this for some extent.
