Another Crack at Watercolor Batik

Heron in Watercolor Batik
Okay, I am working on it, and am going to call my foray into this fun way of painting, a WIP.  Do I get to call myself an experimental artist? I am sharing with you because I have no idea if these things are any good, or even "art" [I'm talking about my work, not the batiks of the many incredible artists who do these so well]. Love the process, and they are fun to do, and I am working on making them better as I go along.  Would love any input you might want to offer, and/or any insights on how I could perfect them.  Am not sure I can "correct" existing ones, but would sure like to know how to paint and wax in a more pleasing or marketable way.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by Jane and Carrie. Yes, I am enjoying learning about watercolor batik, and yes, I am using rice paper. It's a fun way for me to concentrrate on separating values and working in shapes. Still have a long way to go. Stay tuned!

Thank you for your comment Cristina. I apologize for not acknowledging sooner. Apparently your note got caught in my spam folder! In any case, it's always lovely to hear from you!

Thanks, Ann. And thanks for stopping by. I am pleased that my batiks are being received so well. Indeed, I have had several inquiries regarding purchasing, which makes me happy.
