A Month of Painting and Drawing with Thickened Dye
Talking about a journey, I thought I would start with my first attempt at painting with thickened dyes. Our playgroup named Five was meeting and we were going to paint with thickened dye. I was not really interested but was willing to play along. I found a picture of a daylily from my garden that I was willing to try and paint with the dyes. Here it is.
I just happened to run across it after I decided the topic for March. Don't you love it when serendipity happens! Anyway, since I already dislike it I thought it was a great place to start drawing with thickened dyes.
Next comes the experiment.
