Have you heard about the recent craze for pouring acrylic paints?
Pouring paint is alot of fun! As you know from reading previous posts or looking at my art online in my website, I have been pouring watercolor paints for years. In conjunction with my pouring process, I also use fluid acrylic paints and paper collage to create patterns in my artwork.
Pouring acrylics with the sole purpose of being abstract and allowing the paint to do its own"thing" well now that is new to me. But, I am the fearless artist after all and that means that I am not afraid to try to techniques.
A number of year's ago a good friend of mine introduced me to the abstract pleasures of letting go and letting my paint react. It took me awhile to understand the alchemy that occurs when paint is mixed with a variety of other ingredients all with the purpose of allowing the mixtures of medium, oils and paint to develop into patterns with limited interference from me.
What I have found after numerous experiments, is that pouring paint is exciting and fun! It is an easy method of paint application that is more like play then work!
So how about it, check out my new video about this process and then jump in, be fearless and let's give pouring a try!
