These tulips were done in watercolor after I waxed the line drawing. Where you see the white is where the wax was. I use a tool called a Jhanting that you can buy from Dick Blick, I use bee's wax, also can be found at Blick's. Once I finish painting I put the painting on paper towels and iron the wax off. Once that is done I sometimes ink to embellish the design. This is great way to relax and they make great gifts. If anyone wants more information they can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
