Item 52321 – Islands in the stream

This canvas was painted in the bloom swipe method. A base coat of paint is applied, and then the colors (paints mixed with pouring medium) are drizzled onto the base. A special paint mix known as a cell activator is applied to a tool (which can be a strip of paper or a palette knife, as examples) which you then draw through the paints on the canvas to create cells. This is the most “freestyle” method of paint pouring that I have tried, and it’s challenging. I’m seldom happy with the end result.

In the case of this piece, though I didn’t get many blooms, I was caught by the sense of flow as I often am with paint pouring. I see islands of sand and rock in the sea, among other things!

If you desire, I can cover the back of the canvas with craft paper, and a sawtooth hanger can also be added at no charge.
