Item 6921 – Where it begins

This painting was created using the flip cup method. The colors were individually mixed with pouring medium, and then all those colors were added to one cup. You can layer the colors carefully or you can dump them in casually — each will give different results. The cup of paint was then poured on the substrate which is now tilted for composition and to remove excess paint. If silicone was added, this is when cells begin to appear which is a really fun process to watch as the cells evolve over minutes or even hours.

On an 8×10 canvas we have a monochromatic black and white painting, and one of the hardest to photograph. There is a light gloss varnish on it which helps the white to pop, but unfortunately it also adds glare. I have a few close-ups below, but the photos don’t do this justice. This was my first monochromatic but probably not the last I will paint.

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.
