I am still trying to sort out pouring medium and how to get a nice blended effect. I think I have a ways to go but here are a couple more. Both are 8X10 with black gesso base.
C&C appreciated.

Very cool. I immediately liked the feel and color combination here.

There's something interesting and soothing about that green to cobalt contrast with the magenta/red and it's shape throughout.

That's a really cool effect, and so much depth in it.

Thanks jocko.

Jon, thank you as well.

Blue, does that comment surprise me? No. Thanks for the luuuuve.

Hi Michelle, it is easy and fun. The difficult bit is choosing the colours.

M, easy peasy for no mud. The colours don't really mix that much. :lol:

Intriguing! Do those in 4'x6' and in the right show they would probably bring a hefty price. Abstract for sure!

I like these Carol, would love to see them on large canvas too. :D
I've been playing some with the pouring medium, and watching some videos also.
Some, are including, Acrylic Inks and Alcohol in the process.
I think it's easier with the larger canvas to move it around better, but you do have to have some space for that.
Keep at it these are looking real good.....:wave:

You are getting some very interesting combinations and effects Carol. The result is almost like a multi-coloured marble. Keep going!

Love, love, LOVE these! They each have a certain energy all their own.

Bill :lol: yeah I think you are right about that. It is such a fickle industry.

Hi Sharron, it is fun to play with the paint like this. I wet the canvas before I pour on the paint as I saw a couple of videos using water to help the paint flow. I don't want to go too large until I understand about control. I got the lumps sorted out now and can get a nice even layer of paint across the canvas. So that was one issue solved.

Thanks Colin. The light purple is interference paint blue if I remember correctly. It adds an interesting element to the otherwise bold colours.

Thank you Gayle.

Jenni: the yellow was an Interactive brand of paint. It did not affect the drying like I thought it might. Thanks for the comment :wave:

I like this - the method and this particular piece. :clap:

I stumbled on a video of an Australian artist who demonstrated the method using Saran Wrap, and even though it seemed to be completely random, the results are amazing.

I love this. it is so beautiful and fluid, and interesting!

Hi Mike, I have not quite got the plastic wrap sorted out for this but I hope n the near future to get some textural elements in here.

Stapeliad: thank you

Fascinating stuff Carol. A girl has gotta have fun and looks like you are enjoying the process. Like the colours and shapes.
