Inner Landscapes II



Having painted a lot of paper to do transfers onto lutradur, I thought that today, being wet and windy, was probably a good day to be beside an ironing board. Hence, two new 'Inner Landscape' pieces. Here is one of them, or rather, almost all of one of them, they are both slightly bigger than the scanner! The one shown here is made for an old friend whom I haven't seen in a long time, the other for a new friend, whom I seem to see quite regularly.

I was concerned about how to go on with this series, after the happy accident that was the first of the quiltlets. I shouldn't have worried. I did some painting, using the colours I thought were right together, and when I ironed them out, I recognised the people they related to. Strange, isn't it? Or there again, trusting the process and one's unconscious mind is always a good plan.

Hi Marion. I so agree with the last statement...its all process and then comes trusting it.

This one is a beaut Marion and you are so right about trusting your unconscious mind. I find the more I stop to think about what I'm doing it get s more contrived and not half as good as something coming from the subconscious.

I love these colors! So beautiful. Are you using the disperse dyes or the transfer paints? I tried the dyes and the colors are so light once they're painted onto the paper that they didn't look good once transfered the fabric. I gave up, but I'd still like to figure it out!
