It has been a while since I have posted. I have been working on art pieces since my last post, but I feel like I have been spinning my wheels.
I had been thinking of just posting finished work on the blog, but then my posts would definitely be less frequent, so I shelved that idea.
A while ago, I created some patchwork backgrounds that I planned to paint, see here for the original post. My original thought was to have a dripped paint effect, but decided to do some abstract landscapes on some of them.
For my first paint layer on two different pieces, I used watered down acrylic paints. When these dried, they dried much lighter and I decided they needed another paint layer. I switched to Setacolor paints because I know how they behave on fabrics and I could get the colors I was looking for.
Another piece started with acrylic paints. This is when it was still wet.
And the third one. I love how the diagonal piped fabric at the bottom gives the look of a farm field.
I did try dripping paint on another piece, but it looks horrendous. I also worked a bit on the last two patched backgrounds, but I was experimenting and they are pretty awful. I won't be showing them on the blog until they make a turn for the better.
