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.
'Lattice' is a part of a
series 'Leaving the Whites'. On soda soaked and dried fabric lightly
sketch out the image. I discovered this porch in Kaslo, BC when I was out walking my dog in 2011. What a fortunate find as I have painted several variations from this photo.
A sponging technique was used to depicted the hanging baskets of flowers and painting around the lattice left the white of the fabric showing. Details to the whites were added in light grey.
