Fine Art Painter

The Tea House

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 note cards for their Samurai Exhibition.  One of Martha’s friends, while living in Japan, sent her a photo (and gave her permission to paint from it) of a traditional Japanese structure, which inspired this watercolor batik on rice paper.
