Dancing with Dragonflies - Acrylic on Fabric by AstridBruning Dancing with Dragonflies - Acrylic on Fabric by AstridBruning
24 x 24 inch Acrylic on decorative Chinese satin fabric. Another experiment painting on decorative fabrics that I fall in love with ( beautiful dragonfly design).

Difficult to photograph due to the shine and metallic thread. Each shot looks different. This is the best but the blue should be more turquoise. I have tried adjusting it in photoshop but it alters all the other colours too.

Will upload another photo showing a truer colour of the fabric..... Details

The kittens are Clawed when he was a youngster. He had the must amazing blue eyes.

There is so much movement and expression here and somehow it remains subtle and picturesque. It seems to capture the mind of a kitten beautifully.

I am very pleased, I had a lot of problems with this one, to get the kittens to work with the fabric and create space with the limitations of the fabric. Your comment makes it all worth while....:iconlittledrag0nfly:....:iconcatdanceplz:
