This post has been sitting in my “draft” box for a year and a half. I think that between the post before this one, with the Anthro print–and the one that will come after this post–I have finally shook it loose. Lol…
The last post, with the wonderful framed bouquet, made me think very much of the “pochoir” technique in art. It’s a wonderful Deco technique that you can learn more about here and here. It’s deceptively simple in its look. But I can only imagine (never having tried it), that it is rather exacting to pull off.
The paint typically used is gouache. Which I have an utter Love/Hate relationship with, from my days in Art School. It dries so quickly! You have to really move fast to work with it. But the result is so wonderful. Opaque. Beautiful. Pigment.
Combine this with the use of the technique in textile design. And in anything Deco. Well…yes, please!
Although it is not exactly like the Anthro print that jostled my mind, in order to post this today. I will leave you with a gallery of one who I think did it best. The amaaaaaaazing Sonia Delaunay.
Such soft precision.
Love. Love. Love.
