In 2001, our motorcycle travels took us to lake Garda in Italy and we visited Sirmione at the southern part of the lake. Some background to the trip can be found here on Biker Teds blog. At the time I was looking for a subject to use for my city and guilds part two in creative embroidery so I took as many photos as I could (pre digital era!!) to use as inspiration.
These are the first pages in my sketch book and the jumping off point for design.
Easy steps first, just torn painted paper following the floor tile/brick design at the Roman Villa
