AgaPamthus No 2.

The temperature has dropped a little and I'm just about to illustrate the AaPAMthus.

We're in our first official heatwave for November

I decided to use different fabric for the background. I used a moda print on print fabric  and over dyed it.

Now I've just competed drawing the buds on the fabric.

But I'm going to add a lot to it…I'm going to illustrate what's under the ground, the surface and the sky….

I'm not sure just what I will add, but stay tuned…


There's nothing remarkable about this technique, but I dry brushed the ink on the top of the part to be dyed and then wet the rest so the ink flowed down.



The green was dyed graduating up and the purple, graduating down… the colors of the Aggy


The beginning of the illustration

    Thanks for sharing the process of the Agapanthus with us.
    Will you use any of the beautiful quilting design you created for No 1?
    Looking forward to seeing the end result.
    Kind regards

    No, I will design another quilt pattern for this one, it will need to be a little less fussy.
