"English Garden", Silk Painting.

"English Garden", 11 x 11"
Dupont silk dyes on Habotai 8 mm silk.

Happy to share my first silk work done with those famous French dies...
I hear a lot about those basically main things was -
not to be compared to anything else...
Guess what?.. That is right! Love that stuff! Totally amazing possibilities.
Need to mention, being a primary pastel artist, I'm lazy when it comes 
to color mixing... However I only bough a primary pallet of French dyes
to try those out... So it was whole brand-new experience for me.
Yes, it CAN BE done only with 3 colors, however I would add black to it.
Little reminder:
I'll be instructing silk painting class at
Mechanicsburg Art Center and Gallery.
You still have some time to sign up!
