18x20" / 7/8" abstraction created in the summer of 2020. This piece is a study mixed process. It blends brush based painting techniques with acrylic pour in order to create a lake sunset like scene. I began by bisecting the canvas into two regions using masking tape. In the top region, I used a brush to create a vertical color transition from dioxazine purple to titan buff. For the bottom, I mixed up pouring medium using ultramarine blue, metallic gold, and titanium white. I poured the mixtures onto the canvas in three large layered puddles of white, blue, and gold. Using a popsicle stick, I swirled the paint across the canvas several times to create gold tinted waves. For the sun, I prepared another pouring medium using metallic gold. I placed a card board 10" / 1/2" cylinder on the top region and poured the mixture into the center. Once the canvas dried, I removed the cylinder and then used an electric sander to smooth out the ridges left by the edges of the cylinder. As a final touch, using a brush I applied a layer of cadmium orange to the top the region.
