Stepping aside from intense colour to try my hand at softer muted tones, has been my practice this October. Using various “Resisrs” has helped to reduce another layer of intensity. And here are some results on silk.

Recent changes to my dry studio had all my “tools of my trade” all boxed up, & it has been time out for me from creativity. A little like sitting on the fence watching and willing progress to speed up. All finished now! Hooray.

Creating lovely silk scarves continues to be a passion of mine. Here I have worked intuitively allowing my hands to direct the paintbrush. Curiously, I always enjoy the outcomes that result from a freewheeling approach. I feel that the warmth of black (my colour mix) provides a moody contrast to the application of strong warm & cool colours. And the shapes seem to injection spontaneity.

Making time for creative play with a ‘partner of crime’ yesterday got me deeply involved in wax, various papers, & silk. It was also an opportunity to work with shapes to create textural visual interest. Mmm, more work is to be done!

Don’t you just love the feel of pure silk?
Dungog’s weather is losing its biting chill that keeps me out of my cold wet room. Warming midday sunshine is beckoning me to this special place where I can dye to my hearts content. Dyeing silk is a delicious activity and shibori techniques are always so enjoyable for their surprise element.
