Here are first photos of the mountains after I painted them. I also painted along the top ridge of the mountain with very light colors to show the sun rising over the ridge. I use a piece of twine to show me how the rays of the sun will fall so I can paint those areas of the quilt lighter.
The tulle is pinned in place because that is where I will put my sun. I did the same with the black and white quilt. I am using watercolor pencils. One of my favorites is Prismacolor, but I also use regular watercolor pencils. You can buy them in different size sets. I bought some individual pencils because I use a lot of white. I am going to use Rit dye later on to color some fabric that I am using for the petals and I think I will use Rit dye to color the center of each of the flowers. I found out the other day when I was making my petals that I could get the same color using Rit dyes as I had gotten using Procion fiber reactive dye.
