Workstation and pouring

 Click image to enlarge!
My new "workstation", I took the table from my balcony and are now using it for painting. It fitted perfectly between the computer desk and the door. 

 I made my first "dirty pour" Did not turn out exactly as I wanted but it is interesting. If I turn the painting around I see different things in it. Abstract animals and bodies and whatever.  But overall I see a  landscape from above with patches of lakes here and there. I was a bit sad when a part of the colors I liked went over the edge. But could not do anything about it.

When the painting above had dried and I took it away I found the patterns, I talk about above, on the paper.  I did take some shots and then created another digital art in Photoshop from that "over pour". I might make a poster of it and share it of the exhibition I will have in November  :)

 This is what I am working on now. The peacock feather from last week are going  acrylic.
I´m learning new things about how to handle the pencils and colors. For me it is a completely new way of working. One thing I noticed is how shades and highlights occur. Quite fun.

  1. What a great little work station but I am not sure I would be so brave to have it as an indoor pouring area as I am so messy with my artworks hee hee!!
    Great pour, it reminds me of looking down on water with those ripples and waves.
    Thank you for sharing & Happy PPF Tracey

  2. Love your poured artwork and how you manipulated it looks fantastic.
    Happy PPF

  5. I've never tried pouring before but it looks like so much fun! Can't wait to see what you create next. Happy PPF!

  6. I like your dirty pour! I see a tree!
    Interesting idea to create a digital painting over it!
    That feather is a beauty!

  7. Lovely work and a great work station, thanks for sharing!

  8. Wow you are really busy with art. I do see your vision on the dirty pour and the feather is very interesting, however, that second piece is a WHOZER!!! I think making posters of this would sell very well.

  9. thanks guys :) Glad you like it Nicole.
