Busy week having lots of fun. Did some painting with grandkids. Spent some trying to get those elusive large cells, did some negative painting, some experimenting with new additives, and a couple more with house-paint. And tried a few different ideas.
I’m giving up on house-paint, I just can’t make it work for me…others use it with great results but for me whether with just water, pva, floetrol or a mix of all it, whether i use it thick or thin, satin or emulsion, it either cracks or the paints separate so I’m sticking to artists acrylics.
Tried for some negative space works, as usual I added too much colour. But like the results of the first one even though it wasn’t what i was after. Second will get a repaint probably.
Trying for some nice bright cells. I think these were the ones I used coconut oil with, definitely did on the one I collaborated with Nathan, purple one.
I didn’t like the first one below, so swiped it – and swiped a couple more times and ended up with the next pic. Too bland for me, so one to paint over. wished I’d left it as it was 😉
