Hi, all. The following is no Gyotaku, of course, but still an interesting technique. It is known as batik or painting on silk, which my lady teaches and practices. Here is one she has done recently and another drawing that is now on paper, but hopefully will be appear on silk by Christmas.

Thank you. I will post the bass painting once it is done. It is not going to be in such a great detail though

As promised, the painting itself
Plz factor in that this technique has limitations in terms of depth/perspective
it is essentially like painting on glass

Sweeeeeeeeet. I've seen some nice Batik work over in Indonesia.. If this is going to be a painting, and not a sarong or a blanket, shirt, pillow case, etc. sometimes they leave a little of the wax on to create another dimension for texture and depth. These look insane if mounted in a lightbox. Nice Work!

I am not sure whether it is appropriate to make sales pitches here, but if anyone is interested in buying a painting, depicting a bass (or any other fish, etc) - PM me. Here is a link to the entire gallery of her works: http://silkpainting.livejournal.com/
