Full Moon with Spruce, 11 x 15, original watercolor painting, ready to hang on an Eco-friendly mount
Look closely at the stars and you will see they are different colors and values. I started with painting by applying masking fluid over the moon and splattering the stars. Once these light areas were protected, I was free to enjoy applying the sky colors wet into wet. Then I would lift some of the stars and apply another layer of color. This was done several times, finally I painted some of the stars yellow. These steps add depth and interest to the sky.
This painting contains Amethyst Genuine from the Primatek collection by Daniel Smith. This specialty pigment is actually made from grinding the semi-precious stones. The result is a super granulating pigment that fall apart in a wet wash. It is also great to mix with other pigments and I love how it catches the light with hints of natural sparkle. Using this paint adds a magic that can't be duplicated – not even if you try.
This is an ORIGINAL watercolor painting using professional materials by Melissa Tai.
This painting will never be reproduced as a print, you will be buying a one-of-a-kind painting.
This painting is mounted on a double layer of corrugated plastic (mostly likely a reclaimed election yard sign). The edges are covered with white tape for a clean look. The plastic is cut slightly smaller than the painting, so that it is not visible when viewing the front. Each painting is wired and ready to hang. Please see the sample photo, this is what the back of your painting may look like.
The result is a clean contemporary look that is extremely light weight. It can hang many places a traditional piece cannot, or it is sturdy enough to sit on a shelf. The surface is treated to protect the painting. You can hang it as it is, or you may wish to have it framed. If you decide to have it framed, you do not need glass to protect the painting.
