Water and Rocks – in progress

Another work in progress is Water and Rocks, from a recent sketch.  The drawing layer came out nicely- the dried dye I used to “draw” with seems quite vibrant  on the white silk.   (Sometimes I find that my greens do not have as much luminosity when used this way…)  So- my challenge here is to move forward while retaining enough simplicity to reflect the sketch.

Water and Rocks beginning stage

On another note… Thank you to a generous textile artist  for providing some major inspiration.  I have linked up to her Off the Wall Friday.  And have really enjoyed her blog.  Thanks, Nina-Marie, for your insightful writing on your creative endeavors, and on your lovely textile work!

  1. Ohhh I’m thinking I’m going to learn a lot by reading this blog – I would have emailed you back but you are a “no reply” blogger. Thank you for your kind words – as for my blogging style – I started out writing as a journal of my creative process and it just so happens everyone started reading it (grin). Please feel free to join us any Friday you’d like!

    • Thank you so much! I would love to participate. And- I am looking forward to learning from you. I am really impressed by your work. I love the colors and composition of the “Ladies”- for instance. You keep so much movement and color, without looking like “everything and the kitchen sink”… something I struggle with. And your needlework- I hope you post more about your design process and thoughts about it. Anyway, thanks again. And I did not realize I was a no reply blogger. I’m not sure how I did that, but I’ll see if I can figure that out!

  2. Hi, Amanda. Came over from Nina Marie’s to see your very creative blog. I used to play around with painting silk scarves, which I loved doing. Silk is such an amazing fabric, the paint simply dazzles. You make me want to pick it up again–but I already have too much to do! Glad you contributed to “Off the Wall Fridays”!
    best from Tunisia,
