Painting fabric

I've been meaning to paint this David Hockney inspired pattern onto fabric for ages now.  It's quite a literal interpretation of Hockney's swimming pool paintings / photos, but as it's my first time experimenting with fabric paint, I'm ok with that!  I'm definitely going to try doing more of this, it was great fun and really easy to do.  I just need to wait and see if it's going to dry stiff or not and test it in the wash.  Then I think I'm going to make it into a skirt.

I also wanted to see if the paint would run on wet fabric, which it does, hopefully this will lead me to a more adventurous design next time...
