Above: Sunflowers in a vase. Silk Painting £150. Framed size approx 50cm x 40cm. 

Left: showing the fine silk I use. Silk is both difficult to use and wonderful at the same time. Each painting is quite unique.  
 
Painting on silk is a similar to painting on paper with watercolours except that the paint continues to move until it dries, a little like painting on blotting paper. First I make a drawing (a block) using gutta so paint is controlled within the lines. If a gutta line has 'holes' in it, the paint will stream out and the painting will be ruined! 

Once completed, the silk is heat treated to fix the colour. This makes the painting very permanent and it should last for 100+ years with the right conditions.
