January 2022 in the Studio


January is perfect for lots of painting time. Prepared fabric is being painted with thickened dyes to form a permanent bond once cured. 

A panel this size takes 3-4 hours to paint.

As with any type of painting medium, a sketch first helps.

The nature of painting with thickened dyes on fabric is such that suggestion, rather than detail, is best. Details can be emphasized with added stitching.

It's just great to see that whole panel, ready to be cut, embellished and made into cards, etc. It's like seeing magic!!
