Beautiful Chateau Felt Painting
Chateau Chalon, in France by Sonja Weeks Oswalt
It is so brilliant to watch our creative friends evolve within their art over the years! Sonja explores many techniques in felting and lately has been felting some gorgeous felt “paintings”.
She shares that it is 16×20 and is 100% Wool, “almost exclusively” made with Living Felt MC-1 batts. It took 3 weeks to a month working on it during the evenings. This piece was a commission.
“I hand-blend alot, and many of the colors in the picture, here are hand-blended —especially shading. some of it is also layering of 4 or 5 different colors in the same place, just very very thin layers of each so that some colors peek through. I’m not sure there’s much of anywhere on the whole picture that is just one color without extra blending or layering”
