Fabric - Acrylic paint  Sept. 2017

Last week: the end of Sept 2017, I met a couple who were able to buy this piece at an auction.

I made it in 1965 !

Didn't know it was still on this world.

The condition looks great in spite of it's age.

Ocean life 2016
Shown here is the sketch with a grid overlay: to enlarge the image.



 

  • The base consists of gauze with batting on it.
  • Top gauze layer is the enlarged design using the grid (fig.: 1)
    the image is drawn using pencil and colored marker.
  • While top layer is lifted, fabrics are put in place.




With gauze partly lifted I can work on details to refine

the design, the shell pictured here.
Usually this involves hand-stitching and acrylic paint.
Now think about comparing the size of the original sketch to the actual size of the work. (H 48 " x W 96 ")

 

 



Refining the work by adjusting fabric to create the spiky points of the shell.  Oct. 2015
