I started this painting in an app called Rebelle. I used watercolors and inks and created lots of drips. Then I painted with a watercolor brush loaded with lots of paints and drew in various shapes.
Then, I took it into Painter 2016 and used pencils and acrylic paints to finish the piece.
I like using pencils in lots of different colors in my paintings. It seems like a great way to spread color around in a painting.
I like this particular painting because it has a lot of very bright colors. I painted it while we were in Maui recently. I think all the beautiful tropical colors there influenced me.
