Painted Fabric

I haven't done anything with fabric for so long that I am ashamed of myself.  So last night I painted two pieces of fabric, using Setacolor paints on wet cotton.  This will be the basis for my next quilt, a waterscape for my new master bathroom, which is painted pale aqua.  It will not be in these proportions, but probably 2/3 water and 1/3 sky, approximately. It's going to be hard deciding which part of the sky and water to cut out, since I like it all. I was trying to emulate the deep turquoise waters that I saw on my trip to the French Riviera and I think I got the colors right. Now to design the quilt, which will measure about 22 high by 44 wide and will have rocks or sand or both. 

I'll post some more trip pictures tomorrow.
