Just got around to blogging this piece. The last one that "made the cut". This one differs from previous work in that I really spent time working up the piece in layers and "discovering" the painting as I went along.
This one was done this afternoon. I was working on some directions for a client and this one took me by surprise enough to end up in the portfolio. I love it: its got space, energy and I think a sense of joy and fun.

, originally uploaded by P Brown.
I finished this just now and thought I would post it.
I am very happy with the relative contrasts obtained with the different thicknesses and volumes between watercolour and acrylic paint.
Just purchased some hardboard too, for experiments on this surface as an alternative to just canvas......its MUCH cheaper too!

Here's the first of some watercolour abstracts based on plants and flowers I have been working on. I let the piece sit around in the studio, thinking of it as a sketch and have grown to like the interplay of marks and contrasts more and more. To me, its got a lot of fun to it.
I shall be posting a few more of these as they "appear"!

Really enjoyed the process of making this painting. At one point I really didn't know what to expect of it, but I have to say halfway through this painting genuinely surprised me. I am so happy with the energy and - to me - the mischieviousness that comes across in the end. There was a large amount of spontaneity and accident in this piece. For me, this is what is so exciting about the process of painting: accidents that work are a result of the artist putting themselves in the position where anything can happen.....success or failure!!
They were all painted with acrylics and ink on canvas.
