Spring is my dog Summer's sister. She was just adopted my a woman that lives not far from me and of course I wanted to try a quilt of this beautiful girl. I'm not thrilled about how it came out but I am learning that when it comes to painting on fabric, it's really hard to tell when to quit.
I'm using the Lorna Jenkins method as in previous posts. Basic lines traced with sharpie.
After quilting the background went straight to the paint this time. This is where I probablly should have stopped, just finished the eyes.
But no! I wanted to try that beautiful longish hair on her ears area. So I drew in some hair and painted in that area with a golden color. Of course it looked wierd just on the ears so I added the gold here and there.
I decided to call her done at this point and added the textile medium over everything. To me the gold made the rest of her look pink. I don't know if I can paint over the textile medium or not to add more to cover the pink, but then I might screw up the shading which is pretty good at this point. I don't know, maybe I'm to critical - after all it's fabric art, not photography.
What do you think?
Done ........ Or keep going
