Thank you but I don't have any watercolor paintings. I paint in acrylic or i use makers and pens and the computer.

Oh wow, on my dinosaur school provided laptop, it looks like watercolor. I like your character style also, but the beach and bird is what I was talking about initially!

I use acrylic for paintings since watercolors are not forgiving and you can paint over things if you hate them. I actually teach painting classes to adults. watercolors aren't new artist friendly. I don't even like working in them but I do like the look watercolors make. so I found that I can mirror that with acrylics but without the frustration of mistakes.

Hello Thomas,
It's been a couple weeks since you first sent me a note. I replied a few days later, and was wondering if any opportunities to provide illustration on this project still exist..?
Please drop a line and let me know.
Thanks!
Patrick

About Me:
Currently a high school art teacher, looking for freelance illustration opportunities. Particularly, children's book illustration. Hopefully, my portfolio here shows a range of media and styles from detailed to whimsical and even silly. My sense of humor tends to be a bit dry, and visual puns are a specialty as well as comic strips. Watercolor, ink, pencil, acrylic, and oils are my preferred media. Working on my first book illustrations, and hoping to find more such opportunities, please drop me a line with any questions or feedback!
Thanks for reading my profile.
