Paint pouring fun!

Tried my hand at acrylic paint pouring for the first time, used a kit and started with pebbles and marbling inks which turned out really well.

Pebbles left to dry

The finished pebbles

The green/blue canvas was done with paint puddle technique. I ran out of paint when
creating his one. Note to self, more paint required for pouring!

Blue and white paint, followed by green and white paint.

The next two canvases were done using the flip cup technique - I think they look quite effective:

A mix of purple and white acrylic plus pink micron with pouring medium created 'Purple River'.

A mixture of blue and green micron, and white acrylic with pouring medium created 'Blue River'.

Dreamy Mandala - work in progress

I've been busy working on a new mandala painting which hopefully will be ready for the MK Open exhibition at Westbury Arts Centre later this year. 

Once the exhibition has finished I hope to donate the piece to the art collection at Arts for Health MK, a charity based in Milton Keynes who use arts and creativity to improve people's health and wellbeing.

Step 1: trace out lines using watercolour pencil and compass.

Step 2: start with white to map out some of the patterns.

Step 4: Filled in with blue and custard colours to enhance floral areas.

Step 5: Adding pink, purple plus more mustard.


Step 6: The finished 'Dreamy Mandala'.

Murals at Tesco, Wolverton

The murals are now up in the Tecso's precinct, they really uplift the space and bring it to life.
Locals had a lovely celebration of the work going up last weekend alongside the opening of pop up cafe, Cafe Zero.
