Today I worked for the first time on this format: 15/15 cm (6/6″).
I thought about it because I had a late start today, and I wanted to paint, but still wanted to get some other things done.
And I tried working with dripping and ‘splashing’? I dripped white fluid acrylic paint and Indian ink, after that drew with Indian ink. I was inspired by Jane Davies who is experimenting a lot with dripping these days. So nice to get inspiration from fellow artists!
I like the contrast provided by the different ways the watery ink and thicker paint behave. If you dilute the paint I’ll be interested to see what you discover.
Indeed: they behave differently. The paint is more difficult. It is undiluted, so the drops are very thick and lay ‘upon’ the underlayer. Like little hills. I am not completely satisfied with it. Might try it diluted with water. But the experiment is nice!
Aha—you DID paint and post! Hooray! Terrific experiment with dripping and splashing. I like the differences in how the white fluid acrylic and the India ink behave. I like your use of simple shapes and limited palette. I feel inspired—thank you!
