Blue and Gold Macaw

Frescos originated in Italy as watercolor paintings quickly painted onto plaster. The paint would sink in to the plaster and maintain vibrant colors throughout the years. I have adapted this technique into my new Venetian paintings series. I mix color into the Venetian Plaster then apply it with a pallet knife. I apply at least 3 to 4 layers of plaster and top it with a thin layer of color to apply the "antique" affect and add depth. I learned the Italian plaster technique in a Venetian Plaster school in California years ago. they taught us how to apply plaster to walls for homes. I later adapted the technique to add interesting texture to my paintings. I started to use the technique in 2010 on my flag painting which can be viewed in my art gallery.

This painting is already sold but I will have more soon!

This is a rare find in my collection as it did not start as a coloring page. Instead, this painting was inspired by my two very unique brothers who do not care that they are different from the "norm". I have since taken their examples into my life and tried to be ME without concern for fitting in with everyone else. We may seem quirky to other people but we are happy.


This original is the only of it's kind. I have not uploaded it to my Red Bubble website for reproduction. It is for sale in my SHOP. It comes matted, ready for an 8x10 in frame and in a protective plastic cover, signed by the artist.

Materials Used

140# Multimedia paper - It's thick and able to withstand layers of water-based paints. I also enjoy the texture of the 300 series paper. Get 2 packs (32 sheets each) of Arteza Watercolor paper from Amazon by clicking here.

Gouache paints - I love these better than watercolor because once it dries I can go back and put more layers on top to achieve richer colors and depth. I also love the chalky look and feel of the finished piece in person. It almost looks like pastels, which I love but I hate the mess! These paints provide the win-win of rich colors and texture without the mess. Get a set of 24 colors from Amazon by clicking here.

This guy was a special request for a friend as I was making the Hawaiian Coloring book. Her Grandson loves sharks and wanted a "surfing shark" to put on his wall. I instantly loved the idea and happily obliged.

Tombow Calligraphy Pens (fine tips) - My mother gave me a set of these for my birthday and my artistic mind burst with glittery glee when I realized how easily these pens made thick and thin lines in a single stroke! They also ink right over the chalky gouache paint (when it is dry) so if I want to make a piece pop with bold black outlines I can. As an artist I love tools and materials that give me more options to use them. Get a set of 2 pens (different sizes) from Amazon by clicking here.
