Pearls in a hemp leaf pattern on soft denim blue, created by the application of dots of oil paint straight from the tube, and then manipulated. The second thumbnail under the preview shows a close up of my test print at a smaller scale (about two thirds of the current size).

Apparently in the old days in Japan there were master artisans who specialized in painting this design on fabric, which is probably why I wanted to try the same thing: it is very much harder than it looks.
Oil on paper, designed for a basic repeat.

Thanks very much for your feedback Rhonda - much appreciated. I really like your idea for a light weight jacket to wear while al fresco dining in summer, I can really see that!

The pearly button look of this starry leaf pattern adds a gleaming touch to the design! I can see a fancy light weight jacket being made from this print. Just perfect to wear for casual al fresco summer dining!
Thanks so much for all your great comments Shirley, Sue Ellen, Cal and Tina! Shirley I had to work out a different method becuase what you describe is just impossible - for me at least - I guess that's why, when it's done by hand in Japan, it's done by a master artisan. Does make a great pattern though!
Really nice in blue too!
Beautiful pattern! And especially nice on that beautiful blue textured background.
What a lovely interpretation of this classic pattern! It looks like embroidery ... perhaps a line of French knots, or whatever the equivalent is called in the Sashiko tradition.
Masterful- I cannot begin to imagine how difficult it would be to get the squeezed dots to look the same-and evenly spaced. Patience that I do not have. Unique.Well done Su!
