Paint Pouring ~
I discoverd paint pouring with my friend, Cherryl, in January, 2022. I immediately realized that 'painting' with my camera was at least as intriguing as painting with paint.
Paint pouring uses acrylic paint mixed with water and/or some type of paint additive to improve flow and leveling. There are many methods of playing with the paint, including layering colors into a single cup, or pouring directly from individual cups.
With a seemingly endless trove of YouTube tutorials available, I’ve begun experimenting with many approaches.
The paint literally moves, which means the image is constantly changing. At this point, the end goal for me is the numerous photographs that focus on what I ‘see’ on the ever-fluctuating canvas. More often than not, the images I capture along the way are far more appealing to me than the final ‘painting’ which will alter as it dries, once again bringing a new response.
NOTE: Should any of these creations tickle your fancy, let me know. I will gladly you make you a set of greeting cards or discuss other options.
