Day 173 – Pattern Play No. 3

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Seventy Three

I saw a fabric today that was a simple batik pattern with open soft squares and it inspired me to create a similar pattern as an apple.

Batik is created with wax on fabric and then dyed in vibrant washes of color. Hand made batik tends to have no real repeat of pattern because it is usually made in much smaller batches. I have been experimenting with using acrylic on watercolor paper as a resist before adding the watercolor. The acrylic blocks the watercolor and holds the image.

Until tomorrow.


Day 173 was created in acrylic and watercolor. I wish the scan picked up the background better but I love the contrast between the soft background and the bold apple!
