Abstract 45

This is the last technique we learned called a swipe pour in the Pour Your Heart Out workshop with Valerie Kent at the Cavan Art Gallery.

I used three different colours putting each one into separate cups, then adding Floetrol and water in all of them and adding from 1-3 drops of silicon.

In my first cup I used Mediterranean blue and added one drop of silicon.

In my second cup I used teal and added two drops of silicon and in my last cup I added three drops of silicon to silver paint.

Each colour was poured onto the canvas in a loose circular coil shape much like a wave cresting.

Using a palette knife, putty knife or spatula spread the paint around and then roll the canvas slightly.

This original 2" x 2" acrylic painting and will be available with its own display easel for $25.00.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
