This is a photo of a watercolour painting owned by Sandra. She thought it would be a good subject for an embroidery, so, after getting permission from the painter's son a small group of us set to work. After enlarging the photograph, we coloured a building each by painting them onto white cotton with Inktense and Koh-i-noor paints and crayons, then using collage and hand and machine embroidery, we attached them to a firmer background.
The sky was airbrushed onto white cotton, missing out the multi-story building in the background, and all the pieces were appliqued on.
The geese, which gave the area it's name, have been re-located, but we decided to put them back. The passers by are Sandra's grandchildren and Leslie.
