Dye Painting Workshop at Proston

After a few weeks of preparation, anticipation , the day finally arrived. The above image is the work of the most far away student. She travelled 800 kilometres just to attend. The date was selected so she could. I think she was very happy to come, paint and then travel all the way home again. Maybe I might go and visit , to help her quilt the embellishments.
A landscape is in progress here. Old calendars are good for inspiration.
This became a "kakadu frog". Margaret was the only one in the group who had "picture painting" experience. Sometimes not the best students for dye painting. She attacked the background like a pastel painter but reports it has washed up well. She is wondering about the next stage already.
This is the whole group, hard at work. Thank you Narelle for the pics. Hop on over to Narelle's blog to see her finished work.
I had a most enjoyable time, and hope to do some more paintings soon.
