Awesome pic the many shades of blue look great. Is this a part of a larger pic because of the bottom left corner. Nunya Binnus
replies: "Thank you! This is the entire piece. The corner just kept flapping around because of a draft in the room, and this was the best photo I could get of it."

Great work with colours! But what attracts my attention the most is the Serpent's surprised, astonished look

It is amazing what you could do with two hues of blue only. Excellent composition and lovely serpent.

Cute! I like how you blended the colours. What’s batik, though? Nunya Binnus
replies: "Thank you! Batik is a technique where you draw on fabric with melted wax, and then paint over it. Everywhere there is no wax the paint sticks. You can do multiple layers. For instance, on this serpent, the white lines were the first layer. Then I waxed over what I wanted to keep light blue, and painted everything else dark blue, and kept going until it looked how I wanted it to. I definitely recommend trying it if you ever have the opportunity."

Love the expression, very mischeivous! The colours are fantastic. The medium is very interesting must give it a go when I have time... Nunya Binnus
replies: "Yes! I highly recommend everybody try batik a few times. It’s a very interesting process, and it really helps to loosen you up while working..since you can’t exactly erase what you do. I’ve seen some of the most beautiful pieces come about by accident."

Sounds like batik is a complicated process, but the piece turned out so well! How long does something like this take to finish? Nunya Binnus
replies: "At least a week, though most of that time is how long it takes for the dye/paint to dry between layers. When I was painting/waxing, I usually spent about an hour on each layer."

Now how did you know blue was my favorite color? LOL I love it. Is this a sea wyrven? Nunya Binnus
replies: "I’m not really sure. I could never figure out whether this serpent lives under the sea, or in the heavens. Maybe you can tell me."
