Sandpiper, 11 x 12, original watercolor
A splendid Sandpiper wades at the edge of a wetlands searching for its next meal. The wet into wet background hints at the lush vegetation lining ponds and lakes.
Green Apatite Genuine, from the Primatek collection by Daniel Smith, is one of my favorite greens. This specialty pigment is actually made from grinding the semi precious stones. The result is a super granulating pigment that falls apart in unexpected ways in a wet wash. It also mixes very nicely with a wide range of other pigments. 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.
It is signed on the front and back.
