What materials do you use?
All pet portrait paintings are hand-painted by the artist using high-quality Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors on Ampersand aquabord. Museum Series Aquabord is an acid-free textured clay surface that absorbs watercolors like a fine paper. Colors retain their purity and vibrancy in a way that even the finest of watercolor papers can't match. Archival, eco-friendly and made in the USA.
