Hi Wg...ow my goodness, simply gorgeous, I love the silk being your canvas. Was painting on silk difficult, it really looks as if it is?? Thanks for telling me you have a new painting up.

Hi Ruth, great to have your company again :)

I have only done three paintings on silk so far. If you scroll back you will find a seahorse and a Tiffany poppy...and this is my third attempt.

I'm still a beginner, really, at the stage of finding it difficult to put on the gutta properly without getting gaps through which the paint will bleed if I've got it wrong!

It is good fun though and I'm trying to get back to it after a gap of three years. I've now joined a really interesting group of ladies who are very encouraging...so I hope to improve with time :)

I tried silk painting some years ago and it was fun.(I remember I painted a picture of a horse and a scrunchie for my hair).
Your paintings are beautiful.

Thank you for your kind comments, Helen. I think it would be difficult for me to paint a horse :)

Sandy said...

Wow...this is beautiful!!! What a great job.

I check here and kept waiting for a new painting and this was spectacular.

Welcome to my painting blog, Everyone :)

* Thanks for your patience, dear Sandy. I have degenerative disc disease and have not been blogging much or painting as I can't sit too well for pain :)

* Glad you like the dragon, Wanda. I'm merely a beginner in the silk painting so I'm still learning how to control the paint :)

* You are most welcome, Ruth. I am glad you like the painting :)
