Faded Flare uses vivid, contrasting colours, intarsia, and fading between colours to paint a vivid picture with yarn. Each colour fades into the next to capture the impression of a late sunset happening behind an island in silhouette, inspired by Claude Monet’s painting San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk.
