The finished sea.
I simply appliqued the distant hill.
This fabric is too dark for a distant hill. To make it lighter I used the same sheer fabric as for the sky.
The white embroidery on the sheer fabric will be hidden by the next hill.
Mmm, it is not my favorite fabric.
To be honest, I don't like this fabric either. However I must use it. I decided to use the darkest part with brown in it. The yellow arrow points at what could be a brook that runs to the sea.
This is the seascape as it is now.
