Batik Painting of Hibiscus

I experimented with this medium when I went to Malacca during the holidays and signed up for an hour batik painting course at a roadside batik painting gallery. I think that the technique is relatively simple to grasp as it is similar to blending with water colour. I really liked the feeling of painting on a cloth as it would not break like paper no matter the amount of water and paint you add. Furthermore, watching the artist helped me draw on the pattern of the flower I requested with hot wax was truly an eye opening experience.
