The Spirit Quartz Unicorn is inspired by fat lil’ chucks of spirit quartz I adore so much. The color was chosen for my amethyst spirit quartz specimen. To me, this little friend represents a fun, playful, bright vibe. He also reminds me of a special Icelandic pony I met on several occasions in my previous line of work. His name was Henry. Henry was my favorite.
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.
