Mono-printed with acrylic paints and machine quilted
Neighbourhood eucalypt leaves were mono-printed on a hand dyed piece of cotton. The aim of this session was just to practice the technique of mono-printing with my acrylic paints. Consideration of the dimensional effect of overlaid leaves was important to the impact. Edge relief of leaves was a small challenge, so as to prevent spillover of paint…..mmmn more practice won’t go astray and thinner application of paint would help.
Machine quilting around the leaves and within the background gave the piece a sense of completeness. Several needle changes were required – they didnt like penetrating the paint. This small quilt now hangs proudly under the verandah on the front of my home. We live in a leafy area so this quilt “Eucalypt” fits in nicely.
