Dioxazine Purple (I use Liquitex Heavy Body Professional Acrylic Paint) is one of my most favourite colors! I painted the background with this wonderful color and added white infinity swirls in the background. The red and yellow tulips, cobalt teal vase and the yellow-green pear were all drawn from my imagination.
I had this painting hanging at a local gallery for their 'People's Choice Show' back in February this year.
My process is to draw out the idea I've imagined using a watercolor pencil. If I need to make a correction I can just wet a q-tip and dip it in water and wipe the area out easily with no smudging and then wait for it to dry.
