Fine Art Painter

Afternoon Delight

18″ x 24″ Watercolor Batik

These beautiful paintings are created on fine Japanese rice papers (the thicknesses of which are only between 11 – 34 gauge), instead of fabric, which is used in traditional batiks.  Additionally, watercolors are used instead of dyes, with a wax resist, allowing beautiful translucent colors (along with rich vibrant hues which are built up with multiple layers of watercolor), to show throughout the paintings.  This method of painting takes about five times the amount of time it would take to create a standard watercolor painting.

While riding horseback at the CM Ranch in Dubois, WY, Martha snapped some photos of the ride’s leader with the open Wyoming wilderness beyond.  She created this watercolor batik on rice paper from her photos taken of the leader.
