Watercolour & Textile Art

Watercolour Painting                               

Hand (dye) painted Textile












Seeeeing double? No, one of my watercolour painting looked so much like a textile design that I was eager to try painting it on fabric.
A triad colour scheme was used. Joen Wolfrom's 3-in-1 Color Tool' is an excellent resource for colour selection. Spring Green #4, Blue Violet #12, and Orange Red # 20 were selected with the Red Orange being the principle colour and the Spring Green being an accent colour.  To draw the viewer's eye to the highlighted flowers careful consideration was given to providing some shades of the choosen triad.
The 3-in-1 Color Tool or a colour wheel would be helpful in selecting additional fabrics to sew this Art Cloth into a finished piece - a designer pillow perhaps?

I love the combination of abstracted shapes with realism - are you selling this one, or going to work it up yourself? I'd love to see the finished product!
