Painting and preparing to paint!

Last Thursday Painting Class was great fun!  We got to play with dyes and try out some new colour combinations.  I got see how others approach their work and learned more about colours and dry brushing from Eileen.  Eileen actually knows how to paint with water-colours and she has taught me a great deal!  Lindsey created a small scarf for her sample project to paint – It was such a great idea that I wrote a little page about her project!

The pictures start with Eileen’s sample.  It was created using a dry brush technique and a very light hand.

Next project is Renee’s Scarf.  She added Beads and a few lace motif’s to her second half.

Jennifer had a time crunch and her scarf turned into a table runner.  Jennifer brought a wall plaque with her that she used as inspiration for the curlicue pattern in the center of the runner.

Lindsey’s big stole – roses and colour!  She brought the stole in on Monday – isn’t it beautiful!  I can hardly wait to see the other projects all set and dried!

The last project is my second Leaf and Point Scarf.  A real departure colour wise for me – and I tried to make a recognizable picture.  I still have lots to learn!

Happy Knitting
