Night Forest

Night Forest
Watercolor, hot wax on masa rice paper, 7.5x5.5
On this batik night landscape, when I got to the "wadding the waxed paper up in a ball step", I rolled that paper vertically instead of just any old way.  The result is batik creases that run up and down like the trees of the forest.  I first painted the light in the sky, adding some of that same color throughout before waxing.  I haven't done batiks for so long - it is fun to get back to them and explore them in different ways.  I will be SO busy in Door County - with little internet access - that I am trying to get ahead of the game.  Painting number  939 in 939 days.
