Today I decided to do something soothing and creative. I've been going through my fabrics, concentrating on commercial prints which I feel can add some texture to the landscapes I now have in progress.
I have many batiks like this which are very beautiful. I like to take pieces of these fabrics and overpaint them with Setacolor transparent paints, giving them new blended colors, yet retaining the markings of the original design. When I painted this fabric, I came out with this result:
Of course, the way I cut up fabrics, any tiny corner could be valuable to my latest project.
This over-painted piece holds many treasures:
I find just the right section to use by cutting a window from a piece of paper to make a view finder.
I have a few pieces drying on my porch table, out of the reach of certain furry creatures!
Some have salt to disperse the paints and the colors always dry lighter than they look right after painting.
So, it will be fun to see how they look in the morning!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
