Yesterday, I dug out an acrylic painting that I had started but did not like. I decided to experiment with different techniques. So I added more paint, created texture with syran wrap, added some collage papers (birds of course), blew High Flow acrylics with a can of compressed air, stenciled, splattered dots and wrote on it. This was the result:
I photographed my piece as I added layers. In doing so, I was able to see a figure emerge. It also helped me to remember what I did. Here is a close up of the birds I collaged:
These also help you see the depth I created by adding so many layers.
This is what I learned from creating without a goal:
It says: Letting go of expectations, Freedom to play with color and Experiment with techniques. I don’t know if my painting is complete but I enjoyed having fun!
This painting reminds me a little of my life. When I’m willing to let go of my expectations, amazing things can happen!
Enjoy your day!
