Moonlight in the Alhambra

I'm about halfway through the next piece on the warp. This one is based on a photo taken somewhere in the neighborhood of the Alhambra (although not necessarily actually in the site) in 1974. The wonderful building, complete with arch leading off into mystery, was draped with wisteria. I saw it first in daylight, then went back in the evening to take a photo.

The two wefts are a tussah-colored 20/2 rayon, and a bright lime green tencel. For some reason, the photo shows more of the green than I see...must be the light...moonlight tends to dampen everything except the most vivid colors.
