I spent most of Friday creating buildings for the commissioned chuppah. I found wonderful fabrics for the buildings and the rooftops (see the detail below). The off-white fabric with a small stripe in it is perfect for the buildings and I painted half of the fabric with a gray wash so it looks like one side is in shadow. And the maroon textured fabric for the rooftops helps move the eye in the right direction along the buildings.
There is still much detail to add to the piece, but it has been fun to see it come together. I’m looking forward to more construction this afternoon!
