Paint Pouring and Photographs Collide

Paint-Pouring ~
or Photographs

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.
