The Peacock Ore Unicorn is inspired by a stone that just makes me happy. It is comfortable in my hand, it sparkles, and I’ve carried it with me from time to time over the years. It was a difficult stone to color match (see video below), so I pulled colors from first impressions. I ended up loving the colors so much, I made a note to use these colors in another project I’m working on. I hope you have something simple that can make you feel happiness. <3
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.
