I painted some fabric yesterday and then put it out in the 109 degree sunshine, covering it first with all sorts of dried grass and leaves to get a subtle sun print. In that heat, it didn't take long.
I love how dyes interact with fabric, but with the drought,
I try to be conscious of how much water I'm using and painting fabric uses far less.
Below our closeups of the fabric after it dried.
On the next piece, I painted the background, then scrunched it up slightly
and painted a contrasting color on the tops of the folds.
Here is it drying on the line.
