Fine Art Painter

Cherries Jubilee

11″ x 12.5″ 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.

This popular watercolor batik on rice paper was actually created as a still life from beautiful fresh cherries Martha had just bought at the grocery store.  Two additional “originals” of this painting have already been commissioned (and created), and it is the first demonstration detailed in Martha’s book “Watercolor Batik; An Artist’s Guide to Watercolor Batik on Rice Paper.”
