The Quartz Unicorn is inspired by the many varied samples I have in my collection. I’m drawn to those that have both clear and cloudy elements. I also appreciate anything with a good rainbow, and quartz fulfills that need often. What I understand about quartz is that it amplifies the vibes of the crystals with which you pair it. So, in this painting, I wanted to have a crown sort of growing out of the unicorn’s head to represent that.
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.
