Fait Accompli

This was my day to make a colorful mess in the studio. Painting the shibori-stitched silk shawl was so much fun, however, that I didn't take time to photograph much of the actual painting process. Here's the shawl, laid out on the plastic sheeting, and mostly wrapped in cling-film. The colors are in the same order as in the palette from yesterday: from left to right, A, B, C, and D.

The blends at the intersections between colors look great. Here's A-to-B, then B-to-C, and finally C-to-D:

After another complete wrap of cling-film, the whole thing went into a steamer basket, and is steaming away happily as I write.
