A batik painting by Rosi Robinson of two women socially distancing (i.e.two metres apart) whilst they chat, relaxing in deckchairs by the River Thames. As the U.K. came out of lockdown, we were allowed to meet one other person not in our household, but we had to socially distance.
I love the abstract shadows created by figures sitting in deckchairs. Yet, I find it a challenge to achieve the gradation of the stripes in batik, as I work from light to dark, building up the dye washes, whilst I wax the details at each stage. I think it worked this time!
