View Full Version : silk painting tonal value

09-13-2001, 01:32 AM
I work mainly on tulle silk, first freehand gutta line, then silk dyes - very similar to watercolour technique.
Just lately I've had real problems getting the dye to do what I want to do - my tonal values are not working. I also don't know when to 'stop' - and before I know it - I've ruined a really nice line work /piece...
I've been painting for over 15 years - but just lately feel really bad about my work...pretty bad thing when you teach as well!

you might want to check out The Artist's Way forum...as that forum deals with artist's blocks, dislike of our art, etc...this sounds like what you might be experiencing.
