Fish & Seaweed



Another picture in the Arc exhibition [see Thurs 12th]. This one has a top layer of transfer printed fabric [paper was painted and then was transferred onto fabric with a heat press]. Under the semi transparent fabric is a painted fish which has been hand embroidered and has threads hanging from its tail [but trapped under the top layer]. The seaweed was painted on the canvas and also hand stitched on the top layer with added beads and sequins. The fabric is wrapped around a canvas frame.
