This is a photo from my warp painting session last Friday, with my cartoon and color swatches. Just below is the silk warp, after steaming and before drying.
And the last photo shows the sleyed warp waiting to be threaded. As I mentioned last week, only one of two projects on this warp is painted prior to weaving.
It's interesting to me that I'm in a green and purple dyeing phase. Without realizing it until last Friday, most, if not all, of my recent dyeing projects have been with similar colors. Actually, there's something I like about that, because the palette keeps changing ever so slightly and I enjoy seeing the variations on this theme. Green and purple is one of my very favorite color combos, so I may as well go as far into it as I can!
Incidentally, the pattern for the painted warp was one of my texture photographs from a couple months ago, manipulated and recolored in Photoshop.
