The K2 Jasper Unicorn was an odd and challenging piece due to the unique pattern of the stone. This stone is busy with dark crackly lines and what looks like big drops of blue paint. At a closer look, there is a handul of soft green speckles. I am drawn to the appearance of this stone and find it to be a beautiful distraction when my head is uncomfortably noisy.
All Crystal Unicorn paintings are 9×12″, painted to last with lightfast watercolor, gouache, and ink on archival paper. Paints and mediums used in collection include Kuretake Gansai Tambi, Daniel Smith, Winsor and Newton, and Prima. The linework is brushed on with Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bombay India Ink. The paper used is 140-lb Arches Hot Press watercolor paper. They are packaged in a bag-and-board situation (think how comic books are stored), and shipped in a cardboard envelope for added protection. All Crystal Unicorns come with a certificate of authenticity.
