This painting has been the start of accumulating all the undersea wonders Ruth Collis is discovering with her testing. In her online courses, she shows how to make each individual unique feature or how to compile them all into a masterpiece like this painting here.
A custom made cake decorating tip made this highly sculpted wall sculpture. There are various sized strips in this Giant Mushroom Coral painting to add interest.
Inspired by the artistic rock located behind Inn At The Cove in Pismo Beach, Ruth Collis had to incorporate this in her painting with all kinds of acrylic textures.
Unique crinkled feature is all thick paint, not crinkled paper! Other challenges were to curve the flower round, as well as upward, and make the stamen stand up without falling over. This was a great breakthrough for the acrylic paint world, turning paint into literal sculptures!
Made with a literal broomstick, Ruth Collis pushes the possibilities of how big you can go with acrylic paint and textures.
These pipe corals are of a nice rounded variety which gives a unique look, and made entirely from thick acrylic paint.
Some of their wonderful reactions & commentary by Ruth on the paintings...
