From seedpods to abstract

from w
Getting away from the actual subjects of banksia seedpods and floating water plants at Balyang Sanctuary I played about with overlapping, reverse colours, etc. to make new images some that appear to be created using batik wax which used to be a popular art-form at one time and is still widely used in Indonesia and also among Aboriginal communities. It allows for a linear design to overlay the shapes. Here are some of the results - not hand-made, but digital images.

I was fascinated by batik, wa-ay back... These are fun, Wendy.
