Summer. Tea Time.
About this artwork
This piece is from my Figurative series. A whimsical and vibrant summer day with my favorite redheaded girl. When drawing a woman's gentle and mysterious image I experience joy, peace and harmony. Harmony to me is a poetry of lines and colors that has a life of its own.This piece is made using dyes and acrylic paints on Chinese silk. When applied, liquid dyes and paints quickly flow across the silk. In order to halt this movement, a material called a resist is used, which stops the dyes from spreading and creates strong lines, shapes, and details. Once the painting is completed, the surface is steamed to make the dyes bright and color-fast.
