Painting Thread

My needle and thread sit idle these days. I used to make fabric illustrations, but handling the needle for long hours makes my hand very tired. But, luckily watercolor, watercolor pencil and manipulating paper is the perfect transition.  I’m always painting textures and fabric looking things in what I make.

Today’s first offering is some fun with color and lines, I was trying to duplicate an applique look. The second drawing is a chair and lamp from a magazine imported into Procreate (art app on my iPad) and then I added the figure.

Enjoy your day wherever you are, I’ll do the same.

    I used to do a lot of beading so I understand about your hand getting tired. I love how you painted your designs – a really cool look! 💙 I like your colors too! 🎨👍 I have the Procreate app but haven’t taken the time to learn it yet. Looks like you have it mastered, Sharon! 💚

      Thanks Jill, I wish I could still do the sewing and beading. Procreate is not to difficult to use. I think you’d like it as another collage tool. You work in layers so it’s easy to collage. Give it a try, and let me know what you think about the app.
