Fine Art Painter


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.

Martha took the photograph, which inspired this watercolor batik on rice paper, ten years ago. At that time she developed a sketch from which she painted a traditional watercolor (and gave this to one of her college roommates). She worked from the same sketch to create this watercolor batik.
