Background Painted

Only three weeks to Sophie Standing's course. I am really hoping I can get to this and Rob's hip operation doesn't upset the apple cart. today after Tamara finished her schoolwork I slipped out to the terrace and painted the cotton canvass background. I am not too fussed that we are creating a kiwi but it might work out. I will use non traditional fabric colours. I wet the canvass using a wide foam brush and then mixed colours to apply to the wet canvas. The canvas is 75 cm x 65 cm and it took about 3 cups of water to wet it and get the blended colour on - I have used fabric paints to try and keep the hand of the fabric softer as I will quilt it once it is finished. fingers crossed I get to do the course
