Fine Art Painter

Samurai, Off to Battle

10″ x 8″ 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 was asked by the Denver Art Museum to create a series of notecards for their Samurai Exhibition.  Martha created her sketch for this painting by using many references, from which she drew her own version of a samurai and war horse.  She created this watercolor batik on rice paper from her sketch.
