Well, I haven’t blogged about this for awhile, but I’m obviously still sorta schizophrenic ( I produce one kind of art at the Art Students League — see my last post — and something very different at home). Not sure how to explain this, but at home I work with fluid/liquid acrylics and move them around with my fingers, palette knife, etc. … but not a brush. And the paintings I produce look very different.
Case(s) in point: two recent paintings.
Wanted to create a stormy sky and turbulent water underneath. Guess I did that, but the yellow sky looks almost more dominant than the storm. Tried to fix it, but it didn’t want to happen. OK. I know when to give up.
This started as an experiment with red, blue, teal and white. Who knew I would end up with dinosaurs?
Playing with fluid acrylics is a lot of fun. It doesn’t feel like serious work, which is good. I just do what I feel like doing and let the paint (with a little help) do its thing.
