Previously Featured Artists
Watercolor batiks on rice paper. Batik is a technique of layering wax and watercolors to produce varying shades of color. Lynn uses Ginwashi rice paper, a semi-transparent paper with small fibers running through it. “This paper gives the batiks a wonderful texture and a unique natural look,” Lynn said. “The edges are deckled, which gives the batik a feathery finish.” Visit Lynn’s website: naturesartstudio.weebly.com/.
Steve’s watercolors capture the fluidity and unpredictability of nature. His style invokes daydreams of horses galloping across the plains to birds massing in the sky.
