I did a third container, green and blue.
Container 3, acrylic on 11" x 14" canvas, February 2012
Recapping the rules from patternsthatconnect:
- With diluted paint lay a light ground and leave to dry
- Pour paint of similar colour onto the ground and spread it by pushing with a brush from the centre towards the edges of the canvas. Allow a shape to form, rather than delineating an outline. Then leave to dry.
- Pour other similar colours (in pairs of the same colour) onto the new shape or secondary ground, again allowing them to form their own shapes, but not allowing them to spread beyond the boundaries of the secondary ground.
- Around the edge add a ‘frame’ of four different colours, one for each edge, one colour being the same as one in the painting and the others contrasting with the colours laid down so far. Allow the frame to meet the colours of the image but not to cover them.
I used just two colors for the ‘frame’, and used a green and blue palate, but other than that it’s pretty much the same process as I used for the first and second containers. Enjoy! 🙂
