This is an original hand painted silk featuring a fairy sitting in a bed of pink flowers next to a bird. There are 3 dimensional elements to this painting. The fairy wing, 7 flower petals and 2 green leaves are 3D and are also painted silk.
Salt has been added to the special silk paint while wet and you can see the textured effect that remains. The watermark will not be seen on your image.
About Sandra Fox
I have experimented with many different art techniques but it wasn't until I studied Painting on Silk at the School of Visual Arts that I found my preferred media. I love watching the dyes and paints interact with the soft silk and explode with vibrant colors and shapes. The hand painted silk is then shaped and glued to canvas and presents an opportunity to create a textured surface and more design options. My alcohol ink paintings also show the movement and flow of inks across yupo paper, ceramic tile or metal.
In my silk and wood abstracts, the softness of the silk contrasts with the hardness of the wood. The wood shapes are made to complement the silk in color and design.
