Fabric Still Life

October 20, 2007

Well, I tried to do a fabric study with just watercolor, but it didn’t work out very well, especially the hat.  Luckily, watercolor pencils (in this case Inktense) came to the rescue.  I guess I’ll have to keep working on this technique. Suggestions are welcome….

    Casey, this study turned out kind of neat! I like the soft pouffy look to the hat!
    Maybe one of the problems is that the 2 articles are too close in colour. Hard to define the edges between them. I haven’t tried this kind of study just in watercolour, but I think it would be quite a challenge!
    Try making a value study with just graphite to define your light and dark edges and folds.

    I smiled when I saw this as I am doing a little quilt block sewing and have a sketch started. Is that like great minds…. I love this little piece.

    I’m still a complete beginner at watercolour Casey, so am completely inspired by your work. And learning from it too 🙂 I love this, and the old hardware before it, and the looseness of your cats … love them all! And thank you for the kind comments on my blog, I’m still hoping my Mozart will turn up. xx

    Great rescue with the Inktense pencils, Casey because this painting works for me. Would need to have seen a before photo to make suggestions – but I think your own advice, to finish mixed media, was the best solution. Maybe next time you won’t need the pencils. I’ve never tried a watercolour fabric study, not with lots of folds anyway. I’m a coward 😉

    Oh Casey…fabric, I have a natural fear of fabric, it does just what it wants to do! It is something I also have to practice and stop shying away from. I do like the bottom half though and the pencils worked great!
