Washed Silk and Chinese Bowls
19cm x 21cm 7.5in x 8.3in
When painting with watercolour something that I like to do is wash off the paint, doing that leaves the paper stained and makes it possible to build up rich and deep colours with a patina all of their own. This washed silk scarf lent its self to this technique as it has the most beautiful range of blues and purples that I wanted to use to show off my Chinese jugs and bowls. Apparently, Turner used to wash off his watercolours so I am only following in the footsteps of the masters, the best way to learn I think.
