EXQUISITE HERITAGE - Cathedral Exhibition: 'On the Wing'

'Fragment' painting: 'On the Wing'
Final painting completed

2nd Stage of painting
This is a smaller 'fragment' painting, with motifs drawn from sketches from the V&A's 'The Fabric of India' exhibition in 2015. A lovely embroidered bed hanging from 1700, embroidered in Gujarat for the European market, caught my eye, and not only inspired me to create a painted response to the vibrant colours and shapes, but also started the train of thought which resulted in another 'work in progress', a set of wings. For this painting I defined my own bird motif but included some of the blue and red motifs found on the hanging.
