Having spent the morning tidying my workroom, I thought it was time to have a bit of fun and do myself a silk painting ...
I based this on a design I drew when I was on holiday last year - hurrah for sitting by the pool with colouring pencils - and I'm quite pleased with how it came out.
I actually remembered to take some progress pictures, so here they are:
I only used three colours (red, yellow and blue) for this painting and mixed them to make the other colours I wanted. I diluted them down with water to make the blurry background, which helped the main shapes to stand out.
This was fun to paint, and I think I'll be doing some more pieces like this. I might turn into a cushion cover, or frame it.
Next time I might try a similar design on a scarf ... I think it could look really good!
