This dog portrait is of 'Nell' a beautiful Border Collie, sitting proudly on a hill, mistress of all she surveys. Nell is a dog with a lovely serene nature and real collie intelligence, so it was important to get across her true character in the portrait. I worked from a photograph creating a line drawing which I drew in pencil on the cloth before starting the waxing and dyeing process.
The finished Batik portrait comes to life when it's back-lit.
