Paint Pouring

I decided to have a go at paint pouring. You should try it too. It is really quite different form any another method of creating an artwork.

There is a lot crammed into a small space. But hey! we need to manage with what we have. Plus space for the dog!

Work Area

 

You could us a simple work area as I have here. It is simply a large piece of card with the corners folded in to themselves and secured with a stapler.

Then a few off-cuts of dowel were placed as a support to prevent the work from sticking to the card.

I started with a piece of pine board.

The paint pouring

 

After a quick coat of Gesso, I ran some ultramarine along the bottom, topped that with some sand colour, then a green, then white and finished off with a light blue and a bit more ultramarine.

 

I then placed the cling wrap reasonably flatly over the whole lot. Then taking hold of each bottom corner, I lifted the cling wrap upwards and inwards at the same time which produced the effect of waves and pine trees. Then a quick dab with a  rolled tissue with some extra white for some clouds.
