Of my recent watercolor batiks, this one is my favorite.  I'm very happy with the vibrancy of the colors and the shading I achieved.

Deb, this is gorgeous! Great colors, shading and highlights! That little touch of orange reflection in the right-hand side background is super!

I can see why you are pleased. Beautiful!

Deb Léger said...

Love the colours in this, Deb. Is this on rice paper? It looks so solid almost as if it was done on w/c paper.

Teresa Palomar Lois said...

Those colors do look terrific Deb, waht kind of paper do you use for your batik paintings?

Thanks Christiane - I like that little spot too!
Pat - thanks for stopping by - all the way from the UK!!
Thanks Vicki.
Deb and Teresa - these are created on rice paper; this has been applied to watercolor paper for rigidity.
