Mixed media "Fluid Art" abstract painting
- Acrylic paints
- Matt house paint
- Washing up liquid
- Stretched canvas 30 x 25 cm
This time I was looking to create a more gentle and flowing fluid abstract. This painting began with a covering of diluted white matt house mixed with a little washing-up liquid. I dribbled colours onto the wet canvas and then gently blew into them to move them around.
Then I took my wide-toothed comb and swept curly patterns across the canvas.
I dribbled black, white, gold, red and dark blue all over it in sweeping circles, drawing curvy lines and dabs of colour.
Look for the very delicate lacy patterns in small areas of the painting - the inclusion of washing-up liquid helped to create these.
Here are some details from the painting:
