This weeks paintings are "practice" for a wedding gift for some friends of ours that are getting married. Although I like this type of artwork, I rarely do it myself. Probably because it's challenging. But I guess that's what helps you grow right? These were actually really, really fun. There's something very freeing in spraying on the webbing and then seeing what I can create from it, instead of having a painting already in mind before I start.
I used a different kind of paper that absorbs the paint more than I'm used to. I studied a lot of STEPHEN GAMMEL 's artwork as well as JOHN BLOCKLEY's in preparation, so you'll probably see a lot of their influence in these. The next few weeks paintings will probably be in this style so I can have a large number of paintings to choose from to give to our friends for their gift.
I think I'll try a few with my regular Arches paper and see how I fare.
