I took advantage of the sunshine and warm weather today to go outside and paint. I am loving my picture of the crocus in our front garden. So, today with way too many deadlines to deal with, I decided to paint on fabric. I woke up thinking about how to do the crocus and the fan brush was involved.
I have painted on paper with this brush but not on fabric. The above pic is with two purples on the fan brush dragged from the center out. When it looked a bit flat, I looked at the pic again and realized the lines are different than I thought. The purple ink pen was used to feather in hard lines. The pic at right is with white paint dry-brushed on with a round brush. Shimmering white on top of that.
The whole thing is salvaged bits of fabric, a tiny bit of paint, and my experience in painting, mixed together in an experiment.
I am pollen challenged today, cloudy thinking, and facing a lot of deadlines. I can't focus but know I need to get creative and quickly. My next challenge quilt is due in three weeks.
So for today, a bit of a tiny challenge. Here are the petals cut out and placed on the background. No stitching yet but that will add a lot of depth.
It's not the way I thought it would look but got me moving. What do you think?? LeeAnna
