|It was incredibly wonderful to see the open space and a windy sky in a deeper blue than the picture can tell.|
The material I chose is from an old cushion cover, so tender that I can easily tear it to pieces.
I tried a little gouache painting.
And also a monotype which did not turn out too satisfying; although the lines have something.
I painted the red elephant with textile paint onto the stretched vintage linen. It takes some time, but would make a nice effect, don't you think? I don't like it as much as the paper version.
I guess I'll try a lino cut version, although I'm not really happy with the printing results. You can see some of them in the bottom picture.
The lower right center fabric comes from a Finnish designer; I bought it from Spoonflower.
All the other center fabrics are my own lino prints.
I just can't wait to jump into new projects. No, actually this is what I just did.
