I am an emerging artist working in 2D with watercolor on rice paper. My paintings are done using a method that is very untraditional to that of painting with watercolor. It consists of using wax in a similar fashion as you would when you are doing batik, instead of fabric and dyes; I use rice paper and watercolor.
This process is very exciting to me with the many alternating layers of colour and wax. Normally you would watch your painting come to life as you paint it, but with this method of painting I have to trust my creative instincts and my knowledge of colour until the end, when all of the wax is removed to reveal the final result. This technique results in artwork that has a very unique look with a rich texture.
