Abstract Felt painting, Colourway 2, Unframed artwork approx 23cm (H) x 23cm (W)

Abstract Felt Painting “Colourway No.2” is an original wool painting by West Yorkshire felt artist Janine Jacques.

Colourway No.2 was inspired by a series of abstract paintings I created.

It follows my desire to create mixed media pieces using merino wool, silk, organza, chiffon as well as other materials.

I have 3 abstract felt paintings which would look lovely all hung together.

The Process

Drawing on my degree in Fine Art, I use merino wool in lots of different colours (as you would tubes of paint) and lay out the loose fibres of different coloured wool onto my base (as you would paint on canvas).

Once finished the next stage is to make these loose fibres of wool stick together using the ‘wet felting’ technique to make the wool painting into a piece of felt. You do this by adding hot soapy water and friction. The hot water opens up the wools scales and the friction (rubbing/rolling) binds them together. During this process the wool shrinks by about 15-20% and you end up with one piece of felt material.

Once the felted picture is dry I needle felt into the piece to sharpen some of the details.

The final felt art is attached to a piece of acid free mount board and mounted as seen then posted out ready for you to take to a framer to choose the frame.
