Update and Progress

Because a lot of the coppery color didn't show up when I steamed and washed this fabric out the first time, I applied another layer of texture with several shades of rust.
Hopefully this warm coloration will still be there tomorrow after the piece gets steamed and washed out again. Then, a new layer -- building a layered surface is a slow process!

In between printing and painting, I've been working in my sketchbook, playing with ideas and materials that are new to me. Working with the oil pastels (right hand page) is particularly enjoyable because they can be blended by rubbing. I created a repeating stamp pattern for the page on the left which was fun too.
