Pamela Vogan Lynch is a Signature member and is on the board of directors for the Central New York Watercolor Society, will instruct participants with the necessary steps to create a one-of-a-kind watercolor batik painting of the subject of their choice. Pam Lynch will guide artists as they progress from a simple outline sketch on rice paper, through a series of alternating paint and melted wax applications, to their completed original work of art.
Materials for the class:
Watercolor paints (tube watercolors) a mixing palette, painting support, water container, and some “beat up” older/cheaper brushes that are more for experimentation than for your serious watercolor work. The reason is that with this process, you will be using applications of melted wax as a resist during the painting process and flecks of the wax may end up in your paint, etc. The brushes will end up with some residual wax in them, as well, which means they will not be good for much except future batik work! Forewarned is forearmed! Also, we will be painting on a flat surface, so no easels required.
****Japanese rice paper, paraffin wax and containers will be provided
Registration deadline: August 2, 2018
