A friend recently asked me if I still did any silk painting and I had to say that I haven't done any for a while. Here are some silk waratahs and poppies painted some time ago. Silk is a lovely fibre to work with and this is just an extension of painting with transparent watercolours on paper as the techniques are similar, but using fabric dyes instead of water pigments. But the finished silk painting has to be steamed to set the dyes so is more complicated than watercolours.
