Grid Works, Acrylic and Ink on Gallery Wrapped Canvas 50″ x 40″ $1,500 SOLD

 

This started out looking a bit like the Italian flag during its undercoating phase. Then I added gesso with a large round-top painting knife. I had used this on the “Paris” painting and wanted to try it again. Love the result. Of course, the trowel always has a mind of its own, so the lines are a bit wavy and almost organized. Then, as always, lots of transparent¬†paint and dripped acrylic inks. Once I get a good photo, I’ll post the entire painting for you. Currently on display and for sale at the Art League of Hilton Head.

Think About It

“Think About It ” – Acrylic, Acrylic Ink, Gesso on Canvas 50″ x 40″ by Susie Stockholm

This 50″x 40″ painting is full of texture, paint, acrylic ink and interesting patterns. Tools used were painting knives, a garden trowel and miscellaneous brushes, fingers and sponges. At one point I hosed it down after it had mostly dried – see photos below. Only some of the paint and gesso came off, leaving a very interesting surface. The underpainting colors, texture and lines were still evident, so I continued to drip ink, paint and spray with water. Lots of fun. One of my best paintings. Currently on sale at Hilton Head Art League¬†through August 24th. To purchase, see the Contact page.
