By the Lake 11x14
This series of seascapes and landscapes are done with fluid painting as base, then details are added with a brush. Fluid, or Acryliic Paint Pouring involves mixing the paint with additives to thin it it to the consistancy of warm honey, so that it pours easily. Dimethecone is added to create "cells" or textural bubbles. I pour the various shades of water, sky, and land onto the canvas and manipulate it with a spatula. The canvas is tilted for the paint to flow and move into the shapes I want. After it dries a few days, I go back in and work on the picture with my brushes, getting more details.
Each painting is a one of a kind piece, and some have more cells than others. Some of them get more brushwork than others, I try to not interfere with the cells that form, and if I do need to clean up an area with handpainting, I incorporate as much of the original pour as i can.
If you'd like to try one of your own, I have a (badly edited) youtube video that explains the process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qdh5kSmHCyI&t=6s
Each of these is done on a wrapped canvas, which can be hung as is, or framed. You can see some of the paintings framed and hung here: http://karlascottage.typepad.com/karlascottage/2018/06/a-serene-mini-redo-for-the-master-bedroom.html
Excess shipping costs will be refunded after packaged and the mailing labels are made.
"By the Lake" started as a poured paint canvas, but ended up being much, much more. The mountains in the distance and the water in the foreground are still the original cell formation, but the rest of the picture mostly used the poured paint as a basis and was redone with lots of detail by my brush.
The colors are soft and delicate, like a spring day in the mountains.
