ferns

The last couple of days I continued working on my ferns fabric. The positions of the leaves and sprouts is so close together that I had to wait every time in between for the paint to dry. On this picture you can see the whole piece of fabric (32"x60"):
And on this one you can see a detail of it:
I intend to quilt the background with black thread and out line the shapes of the leaves and sprouts. All templates were made from transparency sheets. Setacolor white opaque and pearl simmer were used as paints. In the background the discharged leaves are still very subtle visible.
