Wisconsin artist, Carole Robb, calls her bright, colorful paintings Watercolor Batik. Batik is a traditional wax resist Indonesian textile. Carole replaces the fabric with rice papers or handmade papers and the dyes with watercolor. She layers the wax and the color washes creating a delicate transparent look with rich textural interest. The painting is a surprise at the end when all the wax comes off. Her unusual technique and insight have expanded into paintings that bring joy to people’s lives.
Her paintings inspirations are from her backyard with all the wildlife that surround the pond, the flowers from her gardens, her travels, and her beautiful grandchildren.
