Moving right along
Ella's tallit is made up of a water element, that's really easy for me to create, grapes, again, a no brainer, and grape leaves and wheat stalks. The wheat was easy to handle, the grape leaves gave me pause. I large photograph of a grape leaf was my guide and I painted all the grape leaves with a dry brush on the tallit.
Today I began filling in those grape leaves. I added salt to create darker areas that mimicthe puckered surface of a grape leaf. I'm feeling really pleased with myself.
