So I was looking through some photos and realised that I could now use an online program called Pixlr to have some fun with photography filters. I couldn’t use the website for the longest time because its flash based, and my “Tea” Laptop (I’m referring to the one I drowned as the Tea Laptop, just for future!) did not have flash capabilities at all. So there were many websites I couldn’t access, which was vaguely annoying. I thought I would mess around with this shot I took on the Isle of Bute, in Scotland a few weeks ago to see how it could look with a nice dreamy filter on it.
I think I’m pretty much done with paint pouring now. I like the effects I’m getting, but I refuse to move forward with the various mediums and stuff people use. I like to keep it simple – and mixing silicone with Floetrol, etc, just doesn’t appeal to me. Anyway, here are a couple I made using plain old poster paints. They look amazing when wet, but dry matt and muddy, so thats no good.
Looks like oil or watercolour, huh?
If only they stayed like that I would be a happy bunny! Ah well….oh and I did this too – a paint poured vinyl record.
The colours are more vibrant than on screen, and this is acrylic paint with water.
So I think I’ll go clean up now and move on to something else.
I know, another obsession brewing, heh! But look!
I’m just showing two bits of the same painting here, because it changes all the time – but this is just acrylic paint and water on a canvas. I’m just loving the tiny detailed swirls. Its a small canvas 30 x 40cm, but the entire thing looks like marble. I’m looking forward to it drying so I can varnish it and bring out the colours.
