Today started the screen printing bringing in some of the background muted colours which will make the others sing ,the jacket is for Fabienne and I am sure this lady loves plants and flowers so started with some floral interpretation to give strength to the colours to come.
This is a nuno felt,design and that is all I am telling you for now .

how exciting…it is great to see how you start a project for a commission. lynda xx
start with lots of ‘thinking’
colours collected, groupings made,silks chosen,mordanted,drawings done, silk screens made,colours mixed and made good for screen work,test pieces done ,shrinkage worked out, scales altered on main draft of body shape,1st pieces made ready for pockets.
Whilst in Denmark I shall fine tune my design shape and add the good bits in and the sketch book will fill up then come home and do it .
Ooohhhh….Chrissie…Fabienne is going to love your newest work. Beautiful sneak preview …. Can’t wait to see the finished creation. I know that it’s going to be amazing. Joni Cornell (Australia) and I were looking at your jacket just yesterday (were your ears ringing? 😉
Will soon be jacket weather here again and I’m looking forward to wearing my work of art again. Thank you again Chrissie…I love my Chrissie Day original;-)
