My friend, Joan, is a wonderful watercolor artist...I've been wanting her to paint on fabric for quite sometime and today she came over for a play day!
I don't think I got a picture of Joan, other than her hands! This is Joan (or her hands!) working away!! The flower Joan painted was done free hand!!! Geezzz...even my stick men don't look like stick men...I can imagine painting a flower free hand!!
She did wet the fabric first then started painting..hence, the grayish areas that appear on the flower petals. We are working on a black foam pad which added to the grayish look.

I think Joan did a wonderful job on the shading!!!! She's going to finish off the smaller flowers trying some of her watercolor paints at home along with some textile medium. I love how she blended the colors. I think this piece would look really nice on a canvas bag. It's only 8 1/2" x 11" so it would fit nicely on the front of a bag. I would love to come up with a design for Joan to paint and I would quilt! I think it would be a very nice partnership!!
