Bat Cave

Tish took this striking photograph during her recent trip to Borneo. It shows a hollow at the back of a bat cave that they visited where the sunlight shines down into the cave. It has been on her desktop and I decided to use it as inspiration. I really love the little island of greenery in a place where nothing else grows.
In spite of my distinct lack of black and dark green I came up with this very impressionistic interpretation of the image. There are bits of silk highlighting the green and other little touches which I hope will show up more when it has completely dried but i am quite happy with the overall look. I used some of the blended colours I created the other day. It was quite hard to give the impression of the light coming down. I am thinking it would look quite effective mounted at the back of a dark box with a small light.


  1. I see you're taking your felting to another level. I think it turned out beautifully, and can see it hung like a tapestry as well.

  2. Hello Martine
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate your comment:) It's always so exciting to sit down by the computer just to see who has visited. This truly is a whole new world to me.

    I see that you are very gifted. Your felt work is very beautiful and I think you captured the bat cave perfectly:)

    Have a great week!

  3. That is lovely. Wow, what is it like to be inspired by something, and actually act on that inspiration. :-) Where is it going to hang?
    Love J
