Magnolias

Magnolias, Silk Painting, (6"x6")
Fannie Narte

My previous silk paintings were done with black gutta, which is a resist. This one is done with gold gutta. It looks like it will go well with Japanese images. I may add some thread painting to certain flowers to provide emphasis and dimension.

Enjoy,
Fannie

I love the gold gutta. I have only used black or clear.

Ooooh Fannie - I love this technique. And yes, you are soooo right - a little threadpainting will really add dimension and interest to this already amazing piece. You are really spreading your artistic wings -- with all of these new techniques. Fantastic!!

Thanks for your comments, Jacq and Cindy.

Forever Young, what does "wfs" mean?

Diana, your ladies would look great in silk.

Thanks for your comments, Cathie!

This is just lovely! It looks like stained glass. Very nice work.

Hi, Lisa. It does look like stained glass, doesn't it? I like Tiffany's stained glass work, and I guess his art has influenced mine. Nice.

Thanks for your comments.
