I thought you guys might like to see some of the silk paintings I’ve been doing lately. I’ve been working through the first lot of small scarves I made but now I think I’m ready to move on to something a bit bigger.
Pretty much all of these were gifts for my friends.
All of these flowers are really easy to do and the effect is really pretty.
I’ve really enjoyed making colourful scarves and then adding patterns and paintings over the top using black gutta. It feels closer so sketching so I have more control over it.
I’ve also been experimenting with more techniques to make the scarves look more like water colour paintings.
I’ve been practicing using muslin and wetting and layering the fabric several times.
I’m not 100% happy with the results yet but it’s getting there!
Hope you enjoyed, let me know if you want me to do tutorials for any of these techniques!
And as something completely different, I wanted to let you guys know that apparently I’m remarkable… no wait that’s not it, I’m one of The Remarkables Group now! How exciting! Basically this means that I will be able to do more fun things with you guys. Things won’t be changing particularly, it will still be the same fun tutorials and stuff you guys like but hopefully it just means I’ll have more free time to do a lot more of it 🙂
