I love the contrast of colors, materials and textures of these propellers. When cropped, the shadows on the wall gave these propellers a very monumental quality. I used more marbled fabric for the wood textures. I enjoyed adding beads and sequins to mimic the pockmarked texture of the metal cap on the end of the propeller. Hand embroidered blanket stitches outline the cap as well.
