Dye Painting Fabric

I attended a dye painting fabric class recently and created two paintings. Hollis Chatelain taught the class. I love her work.

The images on the left side are how my paintings looked just after they were painted. The images on the right side are how they turned out after I washed them. The next step is to quilt them. Ha Ha. That will be a while.

That’s an alligator and a Dama Gazelle, in case you need a hint. Now, I’ve sketched that alligator at least 100 times but somehow this one time it came out looking all bulked up with huge teeth. Oh, well, back to the drawing board. Literally.
