I am still in the 'eye fascination' - not entirely sure about whether this is what I had imagned; nor the colours.
The only element drawn out was the circle of the eye, the scales just slowly took shape with each layer. It's kind of difficult to get the notion of depth and skin folds when the entire surface is textured.
My first batik of this year! I think I still have a lot to learn and many more experiments to do : not really a new year's resolution - more like an excitement about the unknown!
