Got color? This silk scarf reminds me of Carnival in my native Trinidad. It got sold as soon as it was done... I love when that happens! I promise you, the colors of the real thing are much more vivid than what you see on your screen. Here are the steps of its creation:
I free handed a scrolly, swirly design with resist and painted with orange, fuchsia, purple and lime green dyes. These are the types of shapes I doodle when I'm talking on the phone... I thought it was high time I made something useful out of them!
Paler versions of the same colors and another layer of shapes made up the background. Sure, I could have left it right there... I think this looks pretty cool. But my curiosity got the better of me and I just had to find out what it would it would look like with the contrast of a black background.
I guess the answer would be... dramatic! This scarf is not for the faint of heart and the person who bought it has the perfect personality to wear it with flair.
