Fine Art Painter

Humming Bird

8″ x 10″ 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 visiting a friend in Steamboat, Colorado, several hummingbirds visited her friend’s bird feeder on a beautiful summer afternoon.  Martha quickly grabbed her camera and took several photos, which were the inspiration for this watercolor batik on rice paper.
