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.
