Acrylic paint, graphite and acrylic paint pens on 300 gsm acid free cartridge paper attached to a white cradled wooden panel and sealed with matt spray varnish. Ready to hang.
This is one of my favorites from the series. I like how the run off from the top line has taken paint from the lower line with it as it ran across. I had no idea that was going to happen! That’s the beauty of working this way, capturing random effects and making them part of my painting. The “lake” on the “hill” reminds me of the mountain lakes and tarns in our beautiful Tasmanian wilderness areas.
The series began with excitement. I looked forward to experimenting further with some techniques I had recently started to use. I wasn’t disappointed! There’s a combination of drawing with acrylic paint pens and graphite, spraying those with water and adding paint with brushes.
As I worked intuitively with the water, creating effects, it seemed the series was becoming more about water, both literally and subject-wise. Suddenly, I could see all sorts of water themed ideas within most of the images. These moments when things come together are what we all dream of! I hope you find these small paintings interesting and fun.
“Run Off” is ready to hang. You could also add a floating frame to this painting using Bluethumb’s professional framing service.
