|Fall Fae Silk Painting|
The temperatures outside haven't dropped significantly yet, but I feel autumn in my soul.
|Autumn Dancers Silk Painting|
As with the first, I put the resist directly to silk with no sketch, and as with the first, I hated this piece initially. Once I filled in the entire background with branches and leaves, I decided that it was going to turn out alright and began painting. It took hours to fill in the background, painting each leaf with multiple washes to give the fall leaves a realistic color gradation. I kept the figures super simple, dancing in the filtered golden light of autumn.
