Sunset in leather

Because you can’t blend or fade one color into another with leather inlay/overlay, I decided to attempt a color fade with stitching. The sun is orange and the band next to it is yellow, so I’ve covered the yellow with orange stitching. The band next to the yellow is pink, so I covered the pink with yellow stitching, and so on.

Leather inlay/overlay will never achieve the realism of painting, but it’s fun to push the limits of it and see what’s possible.
