‘Stillness’ is inspired by the colours and atmosphere in winter when the colours are softer, cooler and muted, with dried grasses and seed heads along the hedgerow.
An original painting on cotton canvas using textile paints and dyes. Monoprinting with real plants, grasses and seed heads I have found on walks with the family. The detail within the painting is added with free motion embroidery. The painting is mounted onto beautiful textured Arches watercolour paper with a torn (deckle) edge. The printing and embroidery reaches out into the paper to add more drama and mood to the painting. Leaving the threads to hang free over the paper, adding texture and movement to the painting.
The textile painting is framed in a bespoke white frame.
The picture size: 25cm x 25cm
The frame size: 31cm x 31cm
