Pink and Orange Tulips

Pink and Orange Tulips

I am asked to demonstrate my pouring technique quite often. This painting is the result of one such demonstration.
I started off by pouring Aureolin and Permanent Rose onto the paper. I then blow the paint and use my spray bottle to move it around the paper. Then I pour the Aureolin and Prussian Blue at the bottom to help create leaves.  After the paint dries, I "find" the tulips and the leaves and paint them in. I do this with negative painting, or painting the shapes behind and between the flowers and the leaves.

To purchase, please visit my Etsy shop or contact me.

Rooster, 5x7"

This past weekend I was the guest artist and demonstrator at the Saanich Fair. I spent the time painting many barnyard animals. The roosters were my favorite to paint. The above painting is one of the many roosters I quickly painted.
