WIP: Courts and Towers

Another miniature, 5x5" at the moment. I used a method invented by Kandinsky: I chose a scale of colours and mixed them before starting. The rule is to use only these -- I have a china palette with 12 little bowls which is good for this method. -- This will be another version of the sea bridge, but more elaborate, and better material. The sea bridge was painted on the reverse side of a cardboard piece in a clothes pack I recently bought. Warm underwear for the snowy weather. We don't have to suffer much in town, it is snowing, but not so heavily, and the temperatures are around freezing point (pic: view from my kitchen). In the country, many villages are cut off, and the snow reaches as high as a man in places.

I'm amazed at the details in such a small piece. It looks like it would be much larger. Again, I think this would make a great quilt!
