Day 18: Mother Moon

November 18th, 2011

Another intuitive piece tonight. Someone asked about the process I'm using with these pieces lately. I usually wet the watercolor paper, then drip fluid acrylic and/or inks onto the page, letting the paint spread and moving it around a bit while the paint is still wet. I sometimes sprinkle some sea salt on top of the wet paint, which creates some interesting textures. I let the paint dry, and let it alone for awhile. Later, I come back, turning the page, looking for images in it. I thought this one was going to be some kind of landscape, but when I went to work on it, I saw a distinct face I couldn't ignore! So, I went with that and one thing led to the next!

Wow, I really love your intuitive drawings! So deep and full of meaning. They really speak to me. I watched your video on the process. I think I’ll have to try it soon!

Oh, this speaks to me.

I am SO going to try this technique. You have laid down the gauntlet with some wonderful work.

Beautiful….love the technique and the results you achieve!


I love the black and how it surrounds and grounds the painting while she seems to be floating!
