Fans and Diamonds is a romantic & feminine artwork made out of tiny fragments of hand stitched fabrics, painted fans on paper inside a repeating fan shaped pattern, & sparkly blue diamonds tucked inside concentric circles. It's been created whilst I watched various period drama's & was inspired by decadent costume, beautiful fabrics and a time in history that we only ever get to revisit & experience at themed parties (or from the comfort of our modern furniture with the telly on). I quite fancy buying myself an ornate fan and beautiful lace costume; perhaps it's time to host a party......
Each of the hand painted sections have been sprayed with a museum quality satin varnish to protect the surface & prevent the colours from harmful U.V. rays.
The sides of the artwork on the canvas panel have been painted blue, whilst the main canvas panel the work is mounted onto remains white ~ please see the close up images.
This artwork is ready to hang.
It's a small piece measuring 7.9 inches width X 7.9 inches height X 1 inch depth; & is packed full of colour and detail.
Please get in touch if you have any queries.
Gouache, ink, fabric & stitch, pencil & paper, all mounted onto canvas board
