October and November Class: POURING YOUR PAINTS — Homework Thread

Please post any questions, comments, or examples of your work with pours in this thread.

You can see the tutorial for the October Monthly Class Lesson 1 here and Lesson 2 here.

Have fun selecting your image for your adventure with pouring your paints as an alternative to using your paint brushes.

Sylvia

Re: October Homework Thread: Pouring Your Paints

An excellent lesson Bryan and super painting. In the demo, one can actually see how the wet pour looks, before it dries for the under painting. I 'm thinking of trying this.

Re: October Homework Thread: Pouring Your Paints

Hi Shritshi, Doug, Athena and Reggie, I look forward to seeing all your experiments and thanks again Sylvia for helping out.
Don’t worry how it turns out; the object is to try something different.

Re: October Homework Thread: Pouring Your Paints

Marisa,

It is easier to mix up the paints when you use tube paints if you have them. You'll want to mix up an ounce or so of liquid to pour easily and this seems to be easier with tube paints than with pans.

Looking forward to seeing people's paintings using Bryan's techniques. I'm looking for a reference to use for this class.

Sylvia

Re: October Homework Thread: Pouring Your Paints

So it seems I am the very first to post......Still don't know what it's going to be but well, my mind will come up sith something......

Here are the colors I chose, UMB plus purple magenta to obtain a violet, aureolin yellow and the third is new gamboge plus scarlet red to get an orange. I finally found a use for those tiny Ikea glass containers laying in my cabinet!



Here are the clolrs mixed with water. I wanted to use the underlaying paper, but seen the quantities I decided for a full sheet of Fabriano block 140 lbs



Now the fun/scary part, pouring the colors on the paper (do you love my pink slippers? ).........



I do not have a gator board, so did it directly on the block. As soon as I finished pouring I realized there was so much color, and that would turn into a mess, so I decided to move the paper on the kitchen sink.....



I began spritzing, but the color was not what I had in mind, it was turning to a happy little mud, so I deciced to add with a big brush a lil bit of UMB. I spritzed and tried to remove excess water and paint......Fun turning into nightmare.....



I tilted and moved the paper, and added some translucent orange to get back some color.......now laying on the kitchen rug waiting to dry.....



Will be back with further steps

Re: October Homework Thread: Pouring Your Paints

You are off to a great start, Marisa. Don't forget to sop up the excess paint from around the edges or you will get blossoms as it dries. That can add a fun texture though.

I bought a disposable aluminum cookie tray to use with my pours. That way it catches the paint and I can use it over again if I want or at least not have it run all over everywhere.

Re: October Homework Thread: Pouring Your Paints

My turn!
I'm not sure what I've got here, but I'm taking a swing at this.
I'm using a Kilimanjaro 300 lb. watercolor block.
W&N paints: Payne's Grey, Yellow Ochre and Burnt Sienna (I'd used these three on a previous painting and liked the results).

I drew on a picture of a castle (from Ottawa I believe? I think you can actually rent this for a vacation).


I sprayed water here and there. The last time that I tried this I poured on paints and they ran everywhere... so this time I used a big brush and splattered on the paint:


Then I started tipping the paint around, and the Payne's Grey overwhelmed everything. I splattered on more of the Yellow Ochre and Burnt Sienna and sprayed water here and there. Here it is, wet, after adding the extra paint:



I mopped up the wet areas around the edges but decided to leave a big puddle near the mid-right. I think that was a mistake. Now that it's dry I have the hugest cauliflower I've ever seen (lol):



I'll keep swinging, and see what happens tomorrow when I start adding in the castle.

Re: October Homework Thread: Pouring Your Paints

What fun Rhodylady. I see what you mean about the blossom. Are you going to try to work with it or wet it and see if you can spray it off?

I like your image you are working with.

I'm enjoying seeing the beginning stages of the pours here.

Sylvia

Re: October Homework Thread: Pouring Your Paints

Hi Marisa,
I have to tell you that the first time I tried this I had paint all over the place. It’s probably a good idea to mount the paper on a board of some sort. I also used skewer sticks on the edges, you place a stick down on the edges of your paper and tape over it. This forms a hump and stops the painting running of the edges. You leave a gap in one corner so can pour off the excess paint.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with what you have done, if you have an image in mind a good way of placing it would be to trace it out on tracing paper then move it around until you have found the best spot.

Hi Rhodylady, this looks great so far, one way of removing the blossom is to dampen the edges and rub gently with a toothbrush or an oil brush, then dab it with some paper towel.
Bryan
