Ink Paintings on Fabric and Paper

I just returned from the International Quilt Festival which is held in Houston, Texas annually.  It is a wonderful mixture of classes, exhibits, and vendors.  This year, my Everyday Matters friend Raena joined me, for the second year, for part of a day.  She doesn't quilt, but the doll exhibit gives us something fun to sketch together.  My doll sketches aren't painted yet, so they won't be posted until later this week.


Instead, I'm posting a bug I painted on fabric with Tsukineko inks in my class with Judy Coates Perez, and two continuous line contour drawings which I'm still loving for quick, slightly wonky images.


The first is drawn on tinted paper - my pencil case contents.  The second are the tools that I used for my second Quilt Festival class - soy wax resist and instant dyes on silk with Ginny Eckley. 




There you are!! Looks like you had a great time....love your projects and sketches! I hope to see you there one of these days....

I really like the tools - they look ready to be used, full of character (if tools can have character?!) I think the scarecrow on the post below is fab too!

Great sketches and how lovely to see your two happy faces!

I was wondering if you two would be able to meet again. Oh to dream that I would join you next year. Absolutely love the bug!

Beautiful sketches! I am especially curious about the 'ink on fabric' work, looks great, want to try!

I had such a great time, Shirley! Can't you tell...my smile is HUGE! I love your bug! I've not done any of my painting yet, so I'll be another day at least before posting! See you next year!

Aha - nice to see you and Raena having such a great time! Lovely photo, and great sketches and dolls.

you really have a nice set of pens!! i love pens!
