    Default Acrylic pours

    SWMBO has started doing watercolours, acrylics, watercolour pencil art and has introduced me to acrylic pours. I'm hooked.
    I don't consider what I'm doing real art because I have no real control over the end product, it's messy but I'm having fun and it looks good.

    My first pour. Gives me the impression of an alien landscape with a sun, or galaxy in the top right hand corner.

    2nd pour. Pretty in pink.

    Mainly primary colours with a little black and white thrown in.

    John, I like them as they are really open to interpretation and the viewer's imagination.

    For me the first one is a boat on a stormy sea at night, the second is magma and the third is water spray backlit by the sun.

    I'm down your way soon, so I wander around for a visit.

    Not something I would have thought I liked.
    Well I like them especially the top one.

    Will they be framed or just left as is.

    Cheers Matt.

    Not sure yet. They are on 3mm MDF so would be best framed I suppose.

    Here's one influenced by an album cover from the 60's. Not sure that I captured the feel. Sorry for the reflection of the overhead lights, the paint was still wet.

    I did something similar on a shed concrete floor ONCE,
    got the concrete damp...
    splashed tins of different colour oil and acrylic based paints all over the floor
    used an old broom and then a mop and air dryer
    splashed another bucket of water over the lot

    walked away for a week then holey moley we liked it, the landlord had other ideas but considering the overall state of the block we improved its value.

    Cliff I like that but ...a banana? unless its a plastic one and going to be a 'personal' item.

    ps I'll keep quiet about your being here if you do the same. Best wishes over next few weeks
