Silk Paintings Of Flowers At Barleycorn

Mixed Irises



I painted the each of the flowers using 'wet-on-wet', rather than on dry silk. The background to the delphiniums was achieved by dropping colour onto wet silk; the background in the Mixed Irises, had table salt as a resist; and grains of sea salt on a wet background were used for the sunflower painting.
