H2O - 3

on cotton, 48 x 68cm

Basically for these, I dye the cloth, crumple it up and let it air dry, the dye then dries in folds and ridges with darker and lighter patches, and then I let it 'speak' to me to do the wave lines around.
This one didn't work too well, first for some reason the orange red mix didn't make many distinct ridges (it may be because I was impatient and didn't let it do it's own thing - using a hair dryer), and it ended up with just kind of messy squiggles, and second, it lacks a sort of single fluid continuity and a focal point.
So, more experimentation required!
