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.
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.
