Watercolor Batik

 I started out sketching on my pattern with a permanent pen, then a light wash
 I then sprinkled on hot was with a brush
 More watercolors to darken
 coated the whole painting with hot wax
 heres a close up. I put it in the freezer for a few minutes 
 Then I wadded it up in a ball
 add heavy watercolor, working it into the cracks 

When it was dry I put it between paper towels and papers until the was is melted off with an iron

To get myself back in the habit of posting on my blog, I'll be posting some of my paintings. This is from Morro Bay where we took a little vacation this past summer. I plan on doing a class on this in a couple of months at Creative Workshop. http://store.creativeworkshops.me/search.asp?keyword=laurie+may&search.x=0&search.y=0
