Experimenting with Watercolour Batik Techniques
ONE FULL DAY: SATURDAY Workshop
Bring your willingness to embrace the unexpected. A fun style of painting using any subject matter from realistic to abstract.
The watercolour batik style of painting removes a lot of control that we have when we paint. The results of painting this way are spectacular with finished glowing unique work.
Using rice paper, paintings will be created with a resist of wax or cream. We will explore the different effects of watercolour on this thin paper with lots of opportunity to experiment.
Participants will be working on several different paintings at once.

Diana’s background includes workshops in watercolours, acrylics and mixed media with many prominent Canadian and American artists as well as classes at the Haliburton School of Fine Art. The beauty, simplicity and Zen quality of Sumi-e (Japanese Brush Painting) led her to study the Nagna style of Sumi-e at the Japanese Cultural Centre.

There are traditional Sumi-e and traditional watercolour and acrylics with some paintings a mixture of both.
