hand painted fabric friday

The sun is poking it's head out of the clouds today, so I have been painting some skies.

Painting a summer sky would seem to be a relatively easy thing to do, but because there is a larger  water to paint ratio (to get the pale blues needed) they don't always turn out as well as I would like. The water can "travel" and not always in the direction you want. Fine if it is a hot day and the paint dries quickly, but in January......

Not to worry. It is easy to go back and add more paint.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
