red symbolism john douglas dye symbolic batik johndouglas jd illude
Love the primitive symbols and style as well as the coloring, looks like printmaking.
Thanks Susan. I guess the process of working with the dyes in areas in batik is much the same as some printmaking, not that I am familiar with many printmaking techniques.
Love these rich colours and the detail, awesome!!
Thanks Dani, great fun to have done these.
very cool… what is batik mean ?
Batik is a process for dyeing cloth – so these are dyed fabrics, a similar process to some printmaking techniques. Most well-known batiks are the Indonesian ones.
