The Daily

Abstract

These abstracts are small paintings that I create to experiment with different ideas, techniques and materials. They are a visual diary of abstract ideas which I hope you will enjoy.

Abstractions in Blue

Mixed media;

  • Acrylic paints
  • House paint
  • Sand
  • Talcum powder
  • PVA glue
  • Enamel paint
  • Wood base approx. 13cm x 25cm  

For this painting I wanted to create atmosphere through the use of texture.

So I began by mixing sand, talcum powder, PVA glue and matte white house paint. This created a stiff, coarse gravel texture paste which I coated the wooden base with. 

Once dried, I painted it white and worked a pale blue acrylic into the wet paint, intending to build up the texture. The painting didn't seem to be taking advantage of the textured surface at all, so I started dribbling paint, dripping white and gold and then adding blue and red. Later I added more texture by  rubbing blue, white and red acrylic onto my Gelli plate and lightly dabbing it onto the painting. 

Check back tomorrow for another painting.....
