Fine Art Painter

Colorado Rockies

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.

This cheerful painting of the Colorado Rockies in Spring was created by Martha combining several hiking photos into one sketch which she then developed into this watercolor batik on rice paper.
