Lattice



Lightly Sketching onto Fabric
Painting with Thickened Dyes
Completed 8" Square



'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.

I'm just drooling over the strongly coloured flowers against that background with the lattice-work.
