I took the swan photo and played with it in Photoshop, changing the color hues and placing an ink sketch filter over the photo. I then printed it onto fabric. Next, I used various values of batiks and had fun piecing. I created the gray fabric using procion MX dye and monoprinting. I then thread painted white feathers on black, filled in the swan with stitching, and then had fun quilting the overall piece.
