Sheers series #7: Waterfall


From over the edge
cascading, plummeting down
pooling crystal clear

This is #7 in my ongoing series of work entirely in sheers. The background is a watercolor print sheer. The waterfall is distressed (using a needle) organza with pieces of cellophane behind it to create the 'rainbow' effect. Micro glitter adds the sparkle of the water spray.
It measures 11"x15"

Thanks for another good challenge Kathy

This has such an ethereal feel just like a good waterfall should.

What a great piece. I can feel the mist and hear the roar. Your technique is very interesting and very realistic.

Thanks all for your comments. I am having a great time playing with all my sheers, I'm running out of windows to hang them in, LOL
