And I just LOVE painting fabric! Wrinkles, folds -- just bring it on! It's all just like a jigsaw puzzle. Some people are addicted to crossword puzzles; I am addicted to figuring out painting puzzles. This fabric had a bit of a sheen to it and the interesting thing I noticed was that in places, it had a definite orange sheen in the shadows and folds. The sunlight was burning through it, creating that rich, orange shade.
And I really liked painting the lavender plastic cellophane! It was picking up the coolest reflections from the gold fabric! And the shapes were just a lark to paint. You'll laugh, but painting the actual flowers was less exciting than painting all the shapes and colors around them.
