Fine Art Painter

Heliconia

12″ x 16″ 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.

During her frequent visits to her childhood home state of Hawaii, Martha enjoys photographing the tropical flora and fauna.  This painting was inspired by lush heliconia growing on Oahu.
