Indigo

One of my favourite colours is Indigo. I spent today literally seeped in it as my friend Gill Ferguson, textile artist, showed me how to prepare an indigo bath before experimenting with dying fabric and more interestingly Japanese papers. I wanted to see if the gampi tissue would stay strong enough when wet to be manipulated and dyed. There were some failures but mostly successes... Here are some of the results and also a digital image of me incorporating the results into my watercolour work.
