WATERCOLOUR AND TEXTILE ARTIST: Eileen Gidman hand paints one of a kind textiles with dyes. The resulting fabrics are washable and suitable for sewing or framing.
Watercolour paintings are also featured on this blog by this member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
Rather than simply choosing from the colours within the piece what are some of the possibilities for colour selection? Using Joen Wolfrom's Color tool, the complement of the cerulean
blue found in this hand painted piece would be a yellow-orange. If you included shades of orange right up to deep rusts, the colour combination with the blue from the 'Prehistoric' hand painted fabric would be electrifying.
A triadic colour combination is another
possibility. The colours with the cerulean blue, would be chartreuse,
and a cool red (blue in it). Choosing uneven amounts of the three
colours in your piece would allow dominance of one colour and
supporting roles for the other two colours.
What other colour combinations can you think of? Rather than choosing just from the colours within the feature fabric try something unexpected for an exceptional piece.
