How can you draw raindrops on roses without having ‘The Sound of Music’ on in the background. Please sing along and view my work in progress, which could easily be a quirky new advert for Parker Quink Ink!
I created a study of roses from some photographs taken one afternoon at Mercedes College. It had just rained and the sun that was managing to break through the clouds was catching each and every raindrop. In the last few weeks I have spent some time revisiting techniques and media that I haven’t used for a while. I have also been wanting to create a rose fabric repeat and decided that if I created it in black ink and then scanned it, I could then change the colour to anything I really liked. Here is an example of the resulting fabric.
I hope you enjoyed my video.
