Promenade is a minimalist composition inspired by a combination of fabrics in purples and lime greens. I added some complementary dark peach for contrast in the horizontal angled stripes and the vertical insets, and there are subtly different purples in the lower border and lime greens in the upper border.
The horizontal band reminded me of a boardwalk on the beach and inspired the name.
The composition itself is fairly simple, so the main emphasis in in the textural stitching in the background areas. Fans and waves are stitched into the lower purple areas, and the upper green sections have a combination of spirals, seashells, and pebbles.
