Happy Friday the 13th! Thought I'd post a shot of something that looked good, but was unlucky in its drying process. The thick blue horizontal stripes shrunk when they dried, making divots in the canvas. If the canvas was stretched, it may not have been so bad. Glad I found this out before using this paint on a really large piece!
This painting was done on 3/25/2012. I thought I'd try a few new tools for this gravity painting, along with some different brands of paint. Below are the tools I tried. Notice that both blenders have cardboard masks attached to keep the paint flying in only one direction. I wasn't very impressed with the effect, but I really like what the egg beater and the wire tongs with black handles can do.
Here is the start of laying down the Background colors with my faithful assistant, Ms. R.
Background blending brushes drying after cleaning.
Here is the final piece, poorly stitched together in Photoshop (next time I'll bring a ladder).
Seriously, click on the image for detail :)
