TURN, TURN, TERN
This painting on rice paper is using a wax resist method much like batik is done on silk. This one is of a flock of terns of course! Below is a segment of the painting. Intentionally wrinkled, it cracks the was creating those nuances that Oriental paintings often has. This copy is not very true to detail or color, but i did want to show the interesting torn edges of the rice paper finish in the lower picture.
