Weathered wave

Oh, I made a big mess during the production of this one. Thankfully I had large plastic sheets. 

For my previous poured paintings I’ve been content to let the paint find it’s own way but for this one I wanted to give it direction. I’m really happy with the result. A lot of energy went into it and I think it shows. Much pouring, scraping, throwing and dripping. Where the paint was thickest, heavy cracks emerged during the drying process giving it an extra weathered flavour.

The painting has 3 coats of gesso, many layers of high-quality fluid acrylics and finished with a glossy oil varnish.

Fabulous! What a great effect. I'd call this very successful indeed.

It definitely has a lot of energy, and a lot of depth as well. It's very intriguing. The kind of thing I could see differently every day, I think.
