Lights and Stars Wabi Sabi

17 x 24   watercolor baatik on rice paper with gold thread $125.00 unmounted

This is  a technique I am learning from Carol Naylor.  Carol is an excellent teacher who stays with you to the very end, and also feeds you delicious fare and drink. 
 I mentioned that the figures weren't very perfect.  My friend, Becky said that is called "Wabi Sabi"
I took a lot of wrong turns on this one, but with Carol's guidance it came out.    
I love this painting and hope to do many more in the near future.  It took all day to pull off this effect of the dancers and stage lighting because of the many layers!
All the paintings created  in the class were fabulous!

Rev, I really do like this painting...the subject...the color...the movement. You are now a batik artist too!
