So what does this person do while waiting for paint to dry? Make another pour!
I had a panel that was nice enough from last summer when I was learning the technique and trying a bunch of (also) experiments. Well great panel; but the result: not timeless. So, what does a person do? Recycle! Even the great masters painted over past paintings. Art conservators know this well. link to an example & article
I’m not comparing myself to a great master in execution; but in this aspect: recycle is a good thing.
Using some color choices that are a little unusual for me, and this technique: russet, copper, sunshine yellow, titanium and black I got going on a new pour. Like tangling, I had no real expectation for a specific outcome; but I was greatly rewarded for this experiment. link to earlier Tangle post
At few points in the process, I coulda – shoulda stopped. But by now, we all know I’m a fusser and so kept on going. And I really like the outcome. It started to appear to resemble a rock slab. Happy day. Stop.
If you look at the video, the whole process took about 15 minutes (my colleagues who can whip these out in a few minutes are well ahead of me for efficiency). I sped up parts and cut out parts where what I was doing was contemplating what to do next (dull!). What’s linked below is a little less than 3 minutes.
Also, I’m starting to move these to Redbubble, if that is of any wild interest to y’all.
Some of the originals are available… contact me directly for that info, until I can figure out a way to sell them directly online. Dream Series on Redbubble
Thanks for hanging out with me.
In peace and gratitude
