On a quest for inspiration.
As you know, I am working on a huge sofa for DAC, which has so far been a total pain in the ass. The fabric is sortof ~*hairy*~ like most chairs and sofas from the 1900s. Which I like, ofcourse, but painting on it is not that easy. I have been soaking the fabric in paint and ironing it in to make it a smooth surface but this is A LOT of work and my hands are covered in blisters. Anyway, I will update more on the state and progress later, but the fact of the matter is, it's driving me nuts! So I needed to get out for a bit to get inspired for the actual painting ón the pabric and to simply breathe in some fresh tree-air. The woods it was, nothing inspires me more than nature. I saw so many amazing colors, tiny little bugs, tree-silhouettes like huge veins, crazy structures and beautiful shapes. Plus I am actually charged to keep on smoothing out that fabric so I can start painting! BZZZ!
I tend to take home a lot of nature too...
