Untitled082013

This was an abstract that I did using a technique I haven’t used before. I painted the whole canvas with silver acrylic paint. The effect on the canvas looked like suede. I then masked the canvas with tape at regular intervals. I then used brilliant yellow gouache and a coffee mixer dipped in paint and spun over the masked canvas. I then repeated the process with brilliant blue gouache. I quite liked the void left in the middle of the canvas.
