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

“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.

Here’s how it evolved:

 

A Surprise of Many Colors

 I walked into my studio less than an hour ago and asked the failed painting what it wanted.

“COLOR, please, and LOTS of it. Slather me with big thick globs of gorgeous Daniel Smith transparent colors! No brushes, just knives!”   So I did.
