Risely Family Portrait


Risely Family Portrait 2014 1m x 1m

A recent commission for a lovely family from Picola. Oi is originally from Thailand and is the most wonderful cook ever; she can make a delicious meal out of thin air! Sean has helped us out with our poor neglected garden- he especially loves roses, hence the inclusion of Iceburg roses. Jai-dee is a clever little lass who attends Nathalia primary School where my husband works as a Chaplain.

Technique: Handpainted/silk screened wholecloth background. Fused fabric applique for figures and roses. Confetti technique for the tree leaves. I used Inktense pencils to shade the roses and the leaves were printed with compressed sponged, cut out and appliqued.

I took photos of the roses, cropped them and played with them in Photoshop. I used them in sets of (window)  cards for Christmas presents.
