Practising cloth previous project next project textile painting home


After all, is it art? For "warming up" before tackling the painting and for testing the color hue and density, I had been using small scraps of cotton cloth. That is, until I realized that each piece looks like an artwork itself. Sometimes it even looks like a small fuzzy sketch of the project, because the exact colors are used. Thus I dedicated a T-shirt for practising; over four years, I filled the entire space up. Currently, I am using the second one...
