Water Play October 23, 2012June 28, 2013 | drawandshoot These are simply more surface reflections of the fall foliage. They made me think of the calico patterns of chintz. Like a little throwback to summer. © Karen McRae, 2012 Share this:SharePinterestEmailTumblrFacebookTwitterLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... Related

Really beautiful Karen. I like this quite a bit.
Glad you do, Phil. Thank you!
Like royal textiles-Fabulous!
Thank you, Elena!
These are just so beautiful – again 🙂 ! The first thing I thought was textiles too. Richly brocaded ballgowns.
Textiles remind me…how’s that dress coming along?! 🙂
Thank you, Trish!
The dress has been on hold until all the assignments are in, then I have another sewing project I need to finish that’s on a deadline, then, in between work hours I need to find time to trawl thrift shops for the skirt fabric … is your life like that too? It’s still definitely on the to do list though! So is some painting …
silk scarves fluttering in the wind 🙂 Lovely!
A nice interpretation, Marina! Thank you.
I’m glad you think so, thank you!
Thank you, Shari.
These really do look like expensive fabrics. Beautiful.
Thank you, chillbrook.
Thanks very much, Karl.
I also thought they looked like fabrics [old Laura Ashley!]
Yes, I think you are right about the Laura Ashley look. 🙂
I admit i had to look the word up but, yes, definitely chintz. And peaceful. 🙂
thank you, alessandro.
I opened it up and just said ohhhhhh so beautiful!
Oh, that is very nice to hear, Carla. Thank you.
lovely as usual !!!
Thank you, Isabella!
These are the kinds of shots that I wish I could make into bedroom wallpaper.
Maybe just on one wall.
Wallpaper seems to be big right now, hmmn…
Thank you, Richard.
Great work here !
Thanks, Karine. I appreciate your comment!
Oh, how I love water reflections 🙂
Me too, Erica. I’m on a bit of a binge with them at the moment!
I know how that goes 🙂
Absolutely very nice and beautiful, Karen.
So pretty. I know it’s water but they feel so airy.
i like that you think they are airy, maybe it’s the sky reflection!
These are wonderful!
Thank you, Kevin.
A mosaic of distorted light and form…and yes, wonderful.
A mosaic, a good word for this! Thanks, Scott.
You’re welcome. 🙂
Beautiful! To me this is art and worthy of hanging on the wall. 🙂
I’m glad you think that, Inga. A very nice comment, thank you!
These are so so so x infinity BEAUTIFUL! I could wear them, hang them on the walls, use them on special occasions, frame them, everything. They really are exquisite. How gorgeous that you made them! 🙂
Ha, ha! Gigi your comment brings me a huge smile, thank you!
These are marvellous Karen.. I’d love the middle one as curtains !
Well, I’m honoured you would hang this ‘fabric’ on your window! Thanks, Helen.
So peaceful. 🙂
It was very peaceful when I was making these picture, I guess it comes through. Thank you.
Gorgeous, Karen!! I particularly like the warmer tones of the first image. They all have a pastel/watercolour/painterly feel to them all.
Thank you, Distan!
