At the moment I am absolutely overloaded with DT work. In fact, I really should be doing some now instead of udating my blog. However, over the years I have learnt that I need to give myself a break between articles and layouts to have a breather and get my head straight. If I slog on through all the work, I tend to get tired and let the quality of what I am making drop. Not good!
So today I was all set to get on with one of the articles for a magazine. But while I was pushing paper around trying to stick to the brief, I found my mind wandering, thinking about a couple of techniques I had seen recently and was desperate to try out! So the commisioned work went away and out came my paints, inks, heat gun etc….
The paint drips were made using gesso and some mists. I mixed them to make the exact colour I wanted then dripped and dryed each one at a time.
