Fine Art Painter

Orchids

16″ x 12″ 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 at a Saturday Summer farmer’s market in San Francisco, Martha passed by buckets of orchids which caught her eye.  The flower salesman let her position some of the buckets in a pleasing arrangement, which she photographed and used as inspiration for this watercolor batik on rice paper.
