Creation V and Abstracts 36 and 37

This is the fourth technique we learned is called a ring pour in the "Pour Your Heart Out" workshop with Valerie Kent at the Cavan Art Gallery

For this piece, we painted the canvas black first and set it aside to dry before mixing six metallic paints and more black paint.

In a large cup we used gold paint mixed with just enough water so it flows and then added an equal amount of Floetrol and stirred it well.

To all the remaining colours; in my case silver, metallic emerald, metallic amethyst, metallic teal and black just enough water was added to make it fluid.



















Creation V

Into the large cup with the gold paint in it, silver paint was added first in circles, followed by the each of the rest of the metallic colours added in circles and lastly black was added in circles.

For the next layer of paints, the various metalllics were added beginning with amethyst, teal and emerald, followed by the silver and then black, once again all were poured into the gold base in circles.

A final layer was added in circles using only the metallics beginning with teal, emerald and amethyst.



















Abstract 36

The paint from the gold cup mixture was poured in a circle over the canvas and rolled slightly before letting it move around on its own.

The run off paint was put onto one of the small canvases which was then set aside to dry.

Then the remaining paint left in the gold cup was poured over another of the small canvases and the paint was rolled around before being set aside to dry.
