So, I got back in the studio today, and I’ve been wanting to try an Abstract Poured Painting. Here’s an example of a good one:
I mean, really, how hard can it be? Clearly you just pour a bunch of paint on a canvas, et voila – a masterpiece! yeah, as if……..
I decided to try a small one first (10×10), researched it a bit, was very conscious of my color palette, and kept it limited so that I wouldn’t end up with mud.
Did the pour – oh man, soooooooooooo bad, such an epic FAIL that it made me laugh out loud. Not to be deterred, I still tried to make something of the painting, and decided that by pouring white paint in a clever artistic way, I could make it look kinda-sorta like jellyfish. Jellyfish gone mad. Evil creepy jellyfish…………
Yeah, not so much……I ended up with a bunch of distorted Casper-the-Ghosts……..
Soooooooooo, I scraped all the paint off, and then ran the whole canvas under the tap, and got this very interesting background! Love it, keeping it, going to work with it!
