Floating: Art challenge 101 #22

Made this from June 20th - till 24th? 2014-06-25

Painting seems finished ( June 24th #22).

or: June art flow

Here I’d like to share two stages of the above painting I made in June. I am entering it as part of the challenge; the two counting as #21 and #22.

I was happily working on more painting than one in the process using wood panels into temporary palettes squirting paint on them, using it, and what was left spread across the panel. Or, another possibility was to leave the paint on the panel as it was to find out next time whether it would hold inspiration. On a following day I turned the palette into the next painting. The above painting was started from this panel (or rather: a former palette):

Beginnings of a new painting (June 24) #21

From these beginnings I worked on the surrounding area using fluid acrylics, mostly a mixture of green-gold, Nickel Azo yellow and white.

I really liked the idea of using a panel (prepared with gesso) or a canvas board as a palette one or more days, to use it later on as the starting point for a new painting. A great idea to work this way – which wasn’t my own, I have Diane Culhane to thank for it. She introduced the idea on her online painting course in June: Painting Your Garden – The Language of Paint. Another wonderful class hosted by Carla Sonheim, I might add.


Drijvende ‘blobs’

Hierboven zie je twee stadia van een schilderij. Gedurende  de maand juni begon ik met schilderen op houten paneeltjes – in het kader van een online cursus van Diane Culhane. Inmiddels de derde cursus via Carla Sonheim en opnieuw heel leuk. Thema: schilder je tuin. We zouden verschillende technieken uitproberen, waaronder het blazen in/op de verf. Op zich voor mij wel een bekende methode, al heb ik het vooral gedaan met Ecoline en oostindische inkt.

Hier heb ik het met Golden high flow acrylverf uitgeprobeerd. Het begin was een paneeltje dat de dagen ervoor klaarlag en een keer als palette gebruikt had (de onderste foto). Bijna meteen duidelijk wat ik ermee wilde doen en dat werkte: de omgeving beschilderen – en daar ben ik tevreden over.

    Great idea! I do something similar when I do gelli prints. Leftover paint works great for inspiring new art! This is super gorgeous!

      Thank you Stephanie for stopping by and thanks for your kind words ! And yes, I also like making gelli prints. When they are not good enough in themselves, they are often a good start for new art. I like to cut them up, collage with them or draw out interesting forms from them.
