Bluebell Reflections, Original Silk Painting and Limited Edition Prints

Every year there is an abundance of bluebells in the woods near The Dewdrop Inn at Hurley in Berkshire. One spring walk, I came across these little pools that were perfectly reflecting the gorgeous colours of the bluebells. I got super muddy getting the photos but just had to try to capture the view.

My paintings are mainly painted on pure Chinese habotai 8 silk with specialist silk paints. I start each work with a drawing on paper and then trace the image onto a piece of white silk stretched onto a wooden frame. I then apply a special paint called gutta, which contains natural latex called gutta-percha, over my traced lines. This creates a resistive barrier through which the coloured ink will not flow. I apply the coloured ink with a brush and use salt dropped into the ink whilst wet to created textured effects.

The finished painting is removed from the wooden frame, ironed to fix the colour in the fabric and stretched onto acid-free mountboard ready for framing.
