Ink, Watercolor, Oil, & Acrylic

Calligraphic Illustration

Wide Long High Deep web

This painting was done as a gift for a friend’s wedding this summer.  I worked in acrylic, experimenting with a variety of textures and techniques.  After creating the sketch/reference imagery, I projected that onto my canvas.  Before painting, I went into the mountains and flowers with a palette knife and modeling paste (basically, a paste made from marble dust that dries as a raised, paint-friendly surface).  It was a relaxing project for me, not trying to capture photographic realism but keeping things whimsical, bright, cheerful.
