Since I started the last blog (this morning) with FIRE FIRE FIRE I thought I'd start this one with triple the fun. (Another edit....I just checked out the site and the Art Awards are going ahead as the exhibition area was unaffected!!! )
I went shopping this morning :D sorry bank account....hahahaha and bought 'some' canvasses and started painting three at once, a recommendation in Pam Carriker's book Art At The Speed of Life, and something that makes practical sense - well sort of. Now I need to to find a place to store them as my room is shrinking. I'd post a pic of my art/junk room but I can't get in there. Well, I lie, I can get in there, one step in and twirl on the spot and that's about it. Hubby needs to put some more nails in the walls so I can hang the finished paintings up. Enough of that, here are the triplets, not really a triptych as that presumes that the paintings all make one painting and should be sold together and who knows what these will be...
So for the second layer I thought I would do each one differently. I thought that if I do three paintings at the same time whilst in the same mood they could turn out all the same, which is not possible with Flora's layering/intuitive technique.
Painting 1 - I just used the foam brushes to cover up the background layer.
Painting 2 - I closed my eyes and had some fun and afterwards I grabbed the Tupperware Cake Decorator that you would normally run through icing and ran it through the paint.
Painting 3 - I used no foam brushes and just did a lot stamping and patterning which was fun.
