Please join us for our membership meeting at the Green Acres Center, 4401 Sideburn Road, Room 116, Fairfax, Virginia. The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. and a demonstration, Watercolor Batik Painting, by artist Jack Harding, will commence at 11:30 a.m.
Learn watercolor batik techniques from artist Jack Harding. See how to create intricate backgrounds and images using Ginwashi paper, paraffin resists and various colored washes.
After he learned watercolor techniques on standard paper (Arches), Jack has concentrated on using innovative rice paper-based techniques to easily add complex coloristic and textural effects to his watercolors. He concentrates on natural subjects such as birds and flowers, as well as landscapes, including many themes from the US Southwest and California.
Jack lives in Potomac, Maryland, and is a signature artist of the Potomac Valley Watercolorists, Baltimore Watercolor Society and Gallery 75 at the ArtLeague in Alexandria. Find examples of Jack's work at https://www.flickr.com/photos/theartleague/albums/72157627370021733/
