So I took some photos of the last set of works, the 6 3 x 3 canvasses and the 6 x 8 now they’re dry. the paint changes a bit from first application to dry and if you compare these you’ll see the difference. I like that unpredictability, its a kind of challenge between me, the paint and canvas to see if I can work out what to do for the results I’d like. Its no good getting obsessed over detail, just vague forms, so this won’t suit those artists who need absolute control, but that’s never been been. I use to love playing with watercolour effects, creating merges, textures etc.
This is the 6 x 8 one dry, second image is wet – about an hour after pouring
Then the small ones, didn’t realise I’d got strong shadows til this morning…sorry. Wet first then dry.
Here’s the last two, and embarrassingly I can’t seem to find the wet images on pc…oops.
Yesterday I did some swipe paintings, where paint is applied to canvas, black at two edges and I swipe over the top gently….fun eh?? It was. Its kind of magic seeing the black peel back to reveal underlying colours.
I’ll show you one for a taster, photo rest dry later or maybe tomorrow, as family over today and time may be limited. Last one was about an hour after painting and torching.
