This painting has a combination of pouring and direct painting. I've really been enjoying using that technique recently. I used a 260# Waterford hot press paper which is a really nice paper. The smooth surface is good for the detail and straight lines in the design but doesn't show the beauty of the sedimentary paints that I used. That effect shows better in a more textural paper. I guess I can't have everything. It would have been really hard to paint the lines straight on a textured paper which is why I chose the hot press surface.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
