Hand painted silk

I’ve been up to it again.  Spent a few hours yesterday painting silk.  It’s still drying.  It’s always fascinating to see how it looks once it’s unwound from the painted skein and made into smaller ones.  Then you can see how the colors interact because in the big skeins the color areas are all lined up but in the little one they are mixed.  But since I don’t paint these in a regular pattern, it’s always a big surprise.  Fortunately, I’ve been pleased with all the surprises.  This is unusual.  I am not used to so much success.
