'Blue Tit'

1994
Framed original
8" x 8" including frame

Sold


For all my bird and flower paintings I always use very fine Egyptian cotton.  It's smooth and beautiful to work on and I can get the delicate fine detail I want in the cracks. 

In warm weather while I am working on a piece, I put it in the freezer between dyeings so that I can get the crisp fine cracks in the wax that I want for the texture of the background.  It is not unknown for me to come down from a hard day in the studio, open the freezer to choose something for tea and find a very cold stiff piece of waxy Batik still in there!

Sadly this piece is sold but if you would like to talk about commissioning one like it, email me
