Irish painting of a seascape and the beautiful mountains of Connemara with a solitary boat in the foreground, Ireland. Made from wool and other materials.

“Silent And Still”

At the end of the day, in Connemara, we were lucky enough to stay in a little B&B just a short walk from this beach where we could watch the sun setting over the mountains. As we listened to the sounds of the waves gentle lapping on the beach. The sun was low in the sky casting a beautiful light over the mountains and sea below.

We had a feeling of complete calm, as we stood silent and still after a busy day exploring Connemara. We watched the solitary boat bobbing on the water until the sun went down.

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.
