    I used to do a lot of decorative painting and went through some of my sketches and found this apple blossom one. I tried painting with markers and like the overall affect but doubt if I do it again. To get the shading right it uses too much ink. I used a whole marker of peach and green to do this one pillow top. My next experiment will be painting with fabric dyes.

    I used acrylics and fabric medium to paint on fabric and it worked really well.

    Your work is too good, you can't quit painting. Just find a wholeseller, and buy paints by the case!!
