Leaf hand painted scarf on silk

I made this scarf for myself from the other half of the length of silk that I made my friend’s scarf from. I used some leaves found on a walk in my beloved Brungerley park in Clitheroe as inspiration. It was strange making something for myself, but we all need to give to ourselves as well as others and honour what makes us who we are. I was really pleased with the flow and how it goes with so many of my clothes. I just had the leaves spread out on the floor of my studio and worked on the stretched silk upright on my easel. It’s really just another painting but this time on silk! I love how the dyes migrate and have a life of their own when I float them on after. I do this flat after the gutta is dry.leaf scarf  whole thingLeaf scarf crop 1
