I haven't done a silk painting in almost 2 years. That's amazing to me because I really like to paint on silk. I approached this one in a different way than usual. Usually, I like to do detailed paintings using resist to control where the dyes go but for this painting, I just got the silk wet and started adding the dyes. I put salt on the bottom section and I'm not sure I am really happy with the result. To me, this looks like the land after a forest fire. I guess that can be an interesting subject but definitely not the look I was wanting.
This hasn't been steamed and washed yet so there are some creases showing in the photo.
I will try this again and see what some experimenting can produce.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
