Fluid Art

My favourite digital painting creations are my abstract planets; they have such meaning and emotion within their obscurity. I love paint pouring for the same reason, plus I get messy which is always a sign of a great time.

One of the things which fascinates me is that I can't see what I'm creating until I take a photo and magnify it, yet somehow the emotion I'm feeling is obvious to me in the painting. I wonder whether our sight, and our judgement of what we see, actually blocks some of our creativity. I think it did for me.

The one down side to paint pouring is the amount of waste from the run off, but I lay whatever spare materials I have laying around under the pouring area and create smaller pieces from that. Often those are more successful, I guess because they have even less control imprinted on them. Here are some wooden animal shapes I've had for years which have found a new life with fluid art run off.
