Mixed Medium Experimentation

This is the fun stuff that I've made lately...started with white acrylic paint slathered on bristol paper leaving behind brush marks and ridges, then I scribbled over it after it dried with the tinted graphite pencils that I adore so much, drenched them with water and squished the brush around to make bubbles, swirls, and other such textures, allowing it to pool and make it's own tide lines...then I let it set up a bit to the almost but not quite dry, and splattered some acrylic and watercolor...let it dry...

I contemplated drawing on them, but left them alone...I didn't want to do anything more with them, I just have enough fun looking at them as is...there's nothing wrong with that, not everything has to be finished...

























Mixed medium experimentation...oh, my goodness, it's always a pleasure!

I will be participating in a group exhibition this summer at the Contemporary Gallery, 230 Harrison Street, Syracuse New York...please click their link for more information about the conception of the gallery, ongoing events, and gallery hours!

What fun! Lovely, Laura. You make me want to play! (With paint, I mean.) Thanks for sharing your work.
