Cluck Cluck


11.5x10 acrylics collage on gessoed 140 lb watercolor paper done last week in Bob Burridge's Lubbock TX workshop. Bob showed us how to peel off the dried acrylic 'skins' from out plastic sheeting palette and collage onto the support. No drawing was done. In fact no drawing was done all week, only brush work. Too much fun
C&C welcome

Re: Cluck Cluck

Did you feel at all uncomfortable not being able to sketch first? I don't do too much drawing myself (I'm lousy at it), but if I couldn't at least make some planning marks I think I might be really out of sorts! I love the way he turned out though, don't get me wrong

No, because I do so much negative painting anyway, easy to learn and practice. You have to be able to see shapes then carve them out with paint.

Ahhhh! Is that how you did him...painting in the negative? And then adding the details? Your pieces always have such a fun sense of personality

Re: Cluck Cluck

Thanks Cyndi and Elinor.
No, I didn't explain how this was made very well probably. Negative painting is only done after the bird was put in using the peeled off paint stuck on plastic. You just lay the pieces on your gessoed paper until you get a pleasing shape, then adhere each piece with matte medium. So no need to draw and no details added. We used heavy plastic sheeting as a table cover, putting our paint out directly onto the plastic.
