Jan 2017 30in30, Day 2

I adventure as follows:

• cut yesterday's 16x20" start in half, 

• take the top 10x16" half and drip/splatter black ink on it,

• let that dry,

• rotate the paper to portrait orientation and paint a 'land mass' across the lower third or so with transparent green gold acrylic,

• mix up some opaque titanium white, some glazing liquid, and a touch of opaque bright aqua green,

• use a palette knife to spread the mix over areas of the painting, rotating my paper repeatedly.

I enjoy the not knowing.

I like the textural energy that emerges.

Here's who I am today.

  2. I was away all yesterday, babysitting duty. I am always amazed at your adventurous spirit. That white pulls it all together. Haven't tried ink or drips.

    1. Makes me laugh to hear you refer to my adventurous spirit. I guess I do have adventure in me but I don't know that I'd think to enumerate adventurousness as a character trait if someone asked me to describe myself. Thank you for the affirmation.
