Quarrelling Gulls


Quarrelling Gulls


Quarrelling Gulls Original Silk Painting and Limited Edition Prints

I find it fascinating to watch the gulls whirling and quarrelling along the coast where I live. This painting was accepted for The Society of Women Artists 155th Annual Exhibition at Mall Galleries, The Mall, London in 2016.

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.
