E is for Exercise (Alpha. Batik)

Watercolor Batik on Rice Paper - 5 X 7

"Get comfortable with being uncomfortable."
Jillian Michaels


  1. Incredible quote!
    And it goes so well with your E is for Exercise;-)
    Chris, do you use black or do you mix it from other colors?

  2. Martine, on batiks I usually use black gouache or black India ink if I want the area really dark. I also sometimes outline with a black charcoal pencil or conte crayon. If I want the area to be more transparent, I mix different colors to get black & will usually go to liquid watercolors by Dr. Ph. Martin for this.

  3. A beautiful piece, Chris!!!
    LOVE it!!!

  4. Such an interesting point of view! I especially like the look of that hand!

  5. Ahh, you have been watching me at the gym,lol!

    Lovely painting and the quote is excellent for it.
