Last night before I went to bed I decided I wanted to try a little something. I typically avoid creating late at night despite the fact that I do some of my best work at that time. But I have been reading Flora Bowley's book "Brave Intuitive You" and wanted to try some things I learned.
I don't often use fluid acrylics. I do use golden heavy body and have a few of their fluids but not many. I remembered that I had a sample set of them I bought about a year ago and grabbed two colors I never use. . . quin magenta and phalto green (blue shade). I had a 6x8 canvas panel laying around so I grabbed that and randomly dropped some paint onto it. I used my fingers to smear it around and couldn't believe how striking the colors were. So deep and rich. I grabbed a spray bottle of water, held it close to the panel and sprayed. And I smiled. I just sooo love drips!
I didn't want to walk away and go to bed but I did. Not sure where I will go with this but wow it was fun and I love the colors! So out of my comfort zone. I can see a flower in the top right of the canvas. I may become a bit attached to it.
I have been wanting to take Flora's online class. It has been on my workshop wish list. Have any of you taken it?
So I am not sure where I will go with this but in the meantime I found a 16x20 canvas that had a landscape started on it but I am thinking that its time for something new. I may just start adding some fluids and spraying away with that water again!
