Translating a Shell

First rough sketch for something new (smocked impatiently during a car ride).

The plan is to make a series with a restricted colour palette and complex patterns.

Dyeing with 'primitive' things - iron and tannin (= rust and tea). Using shibori-style bound resist to add stripes across the pleats.

This is stunning, you've done it so well.

This is so beautiful - the subtle colours are perfect. It also reminds me of a mushroom's gills! Amazing work, as always.
