I went to a silk painting workshop and decided to create a design for Dewalt. I wanted to show the contrasts of material and how different your work can be depending on which technique you use. I had done quite a lot of silk painting in foundation year so it was quite easy to get back into. Below is the image of my silk painting piece.
Because the material is light and flowy, it almost looks fragile, and this is the complete opposite of what I want to portray within my work for Dewalt. I’m glad i made this piece, as nice as the ink marks are with the wet background it just doesn’t fit in with my theme.
