We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Pebbles 3

For this third piece I have used a different method of discharging and over dyeing to create the images of the pebbles before quilting and over colouring parts of the pebbles. All pebble pieces were based on  photos taken of the pebbles in the stream at the bottom of our garden at different times of the year in varying light conditions. In this piece I have tried to capture the strong sunlight illuminating both the river bed and the pebbles.

For this piece I have been experimenting with some pigment based soluble wax artists sticks to add additional colour on top of the original discharge pebble shape, I have found they can be fixed with heat or a watered down fabric medium - I used Golden.
