Another batik. It is fun to do two at once. I try to find a subject with a white accent and daisies are perfect. I kept the color of final application light on this painting, so the batik look is subtle.

I am back playing with batik painting. It is time consuming, but relaxing. There is always a surprise at the end. When the wax is crinkled and the dark paint applied, you just don't know what the results will be. In this painting, it looks like foliage in the background.

This painting was created by pouring watercolor paint. After the paper is stretched and stapled to a board, masking fluid is applied to wherever light hits the subject. Then you pour the premixed primary colors, beginning with yellow.
