Batik with Watercolor
“I enjoy the spontaneity of watercolor. When considering subjects to paint, I am attracted to those with interesting perspective, dramatic light and elements that are meaningful to me personally. Patterns, texture and unique shapes are particularly interesting to me."
"I have been experimenting with papers and discovered that I love the texture and look of watercolor on ginwashi rice paper. In most of my paintings, I use a batik process where I apply a resist to the paper (either molten wax or liquid rubber latex) over previously applied colors that I really like. That preserves that color from any further glazing. Whether on 300 lb watercolor paper, or rice paper, the result is a luminous, transparent painting.”
