The Artwork of Ginny Barkman
Watercolors and Batík Eggshell Art Ginny Barkman is an artist working and seeking expertise in several different mediums. For nearly 20 years she worked only in wax and dye on eggshell, (pysanky). Recently she has enjoyed working with watercolors, pen and ink, watercolor pencil and photographing various subjects for her artwork and webpages. Ginny is a self-taught artist, gleaning information on technique from reading, experimenting, attending workshops and working with other artists. She is currently writing a book on technique and troubleshooting related to batík and acid-etched eggshell art. In the midst of her varied activities, Ginny manages to paint a variety of watercolor subjects from plants and animals to people, places and things. She uses a dry-brush realistic method in her watercolor work. Her eggshell artwork encompasses the traditional as well as contemporary non-traditional work.
