Satin on the paving

After the last cloth paintings, I bought a piece of satin! Then draped it over everything around the house.  And ended with this painting. I did a tutorial of how to paint drapery, you can find it here.

  1. you’ve done such a great job both on the paving as well as the drape…what a stunning colour that satin is and it LOOKS like satin!! how did you do it!

    • Thanks Ronell. I had a colour in mind and was pleased that I got it! The colour was not pink and not orange…somewhere inbetween. The drapes do look a bit more shiny on the photograph.
