Handpainted warp

Did you paint it yourself? Whether you painted this warp or someone else did, you certainly made good use of it. The twill fabric is lovely. The orange red weft was an excellent choice.

Warp

Thanks! Yes, I dyed the warp myself. I've been dyeing for years, but this is my first warp. There are four different warp sections, and my hope was to avoid having the same colors side by side in different sections. Mostly it worked, but the yarn is so elastic that it was a little fussy. I'm happy with the orange red weft too. :-)
