Painting on paper and textile

Last week I made this painting. It was 'Sophia's evening'. Every other week on thursday we spend an evening at Sophia's home painting, making collages and so on. We use all kinds of material, but generally no textiles are involved.
It is called 'beeldend vormen' (I do not know how to translate it in English).
I listend to African music when painting this one. The rithm influences the brush strokes.

When I came home the piece below caught my attention because of the same colors.
I made this one last year and used cotton, procion MX, gelmedium with sand added, paint and stamps.
I has a feeling of Africa too. They match very good I think.
