|Stained Glass Tulips|
Even though Theresa fills her time as a gallery manager by day, her artwork has not played second fiddle. Theresa works in acrylic ink, a medium that has the brilliance of acrylic color but flows more like watercolor. With the acrylic washes, she can go back and create layers or remove color by scrubbing the surface. As the process is very intuitive for her, Theresa lets each painting lead the way.
Theresa uses a variety of good brushes on her work, squirrel mops, wide hake brushes, lots of rounds, filberts and long liners. Sometimes she will even pick up a bristle brush for it's ability to move and scour watercolor on the surface of paper or canvas. Even though her arsenal of brushes is full, usually a piece will require just a few familiar ones.
After raising a family, Theresa transitioned into instructing watercolors as well as painting her own. Within her own work as well as in teaching her students, Theresa advises to purchase quality. A pattern that we've seen many times from seasoned artists.
