View Full Version : Question about something that is Driving Me Crazy?!?!

Ok, I'm sure this is a dumb question, but I have been trying to find the answers to no avail. :confused:

First question is, does Thomas Kinkade paint with Oil or Acrylics?


Second question, how or what does he use to make the yellow "light" effects? Does he use some paint method or type of paint?

Please forgive me if this is a dumb question. :o

Thanks for all your help.

Remember that the dumb question is the one that isn't asked!

I seem to remember reading an article that said TK uses watercolors. As to how he gets his yellow light effect, I suppose it's the same way you get into the MoMA -- practice, practice, practice! (Which is a roundabout way of saying, "Beats me!) :)
