Recently I came across the beautiful fine art silk paintings of Deborah Younglao when Deborah started following my blogs
Deborah's work is exquisite, vibrant, cheerful and colourful
This one reminds me very much of many different holidays I've had to the Canary Islands, the colours of the volcanoes and mountains and earthy soil
Deborah's very fine detailed work is incredibly inspiring but her abstract landscapes are really firing my imagination rigt now ... WOW ... my mind is running riot with abstract colour combinations
These words from Deborah's blog are inspiration itself and make me want to get my silk paints out again
"Imagine a piece of shimmering, white, silk stretched on a frame. You dip your brush into some liquid dye and touch it to the silk. Instantly there’s an explosion of brilliant color as the dye spreads over the silk. Add another color and the dyes dance together on the silk, moving and blending as they go. Add water or salt, and spontaneous organic textures develop and take on a life of their own. It's fun to watch the dyes and silk interact - I hope you'll enjoy the outcome!"
This is one of two note cards with prints from her original silk paintings that Deborah sent me recently for helping her in her quest to choose a piece for a show
Not only do I love the colours and details in this piece but also the humour. This prickly guy is so cute! This strange spiky fish reminds me of the conker shells that I picked up today
The shells have little spikes
And looking more closely, as I always do, at the detail of the conker shell I see wonderful "rust like" textures and colours. Oh wow!
If you enjoyed seeing Deborah's work please pop over to her blog and let her know
I hope you have a great weekend :o)
