Lumiere on bags

Gum Blossom

The Lumiere paints can be quite dramatic. I tend to prefer the opaque metallic as this covers black and leaves a gleam on the finished work. When mixing the colours for the leaves I just put small amounts of colour with the pearlescent white and blend to achieve a variety of colours.

Grass trees

With this bag the black fabric has been left unpainted to simulate a stained glass window effect. The quilting lines were added last.

Banksia and Hakea seed pod designs.

Here again I have left the black fabric to give the appearance of stained glass windows. I went back over the banksia blossom and touched up the orange dots after the quilting.

Playing with the Lumiere

This work shows broader gaps between the paint. The first is an abstract design the second is a journal cover featuring Sturt’s Desert Pea.
