This piece was created by misting and then scrunching cotton. I hit the tops of the fabric peaks with paint and then dropped painted randomly across the surface of the fabric. Once I pressed it I thought it need a little more color in the background so I dyed it with ivory... just enough to calm down the bright white of the original fabric.
Typically I would add another surface technique for more vivid colors but there was something appealing about this calm and quiet piece!
What are your quiet colors?
