I really love color, some colors more than others. It is interesting that I notice in my design work, I tend to go in phases. I do use a lot of neutrals. I have not had a chance to paint (direct silk painting) in a while. The process is so refreshing to me. Drawing with the resist painting in each dye color similar to painting with watercolors. The result is so different than screen printed fabrics. My real goal is to combine painting, dyeing and printing in a style I have been working on. I am currently working with silk organza, hopefully some new jacket results soon.
This is a finished silk piece, the fabric just takes in the color and it is beautiful.
