This hand painted wallhanging is inspired by fields and boundaries in Fife.
Initial sketches for this wall hanging were created using washi tape and developed from photographs. Through sampling and experimentation on the print table, balance of composition, pattern and colour all play a key role.
The process is slow and steady, through building up layers upon layers of colour onto a base cloth. The composition is mapped out, using thread, and chalk before hand painting the first layer of colour in place. The dye needs to dry in between each layer, before another can be applied. The fabric then gets lifted, steamed and washed before being put back down on the table for another layer of colour and pattern to be applied. This process may be repeated 3 or 4 times before the hanging is completed.
