Pouring My Art Out

These are my favourite painting to make. I love the immediacy of this kind of art. I'm pretty impatient and like to go with the flow. These paintings literally go with the flow and make naturally beautiful patterns. I use mostly acrylic paint on canvas or wooden board, but I LOVE mixing my mediums to create multiple effects within each painting. Sometimes they are glossy, sometimes matte, sometimes they crack or shrink as they dry. The unplanned elements are usually the parts I love the most. I manipulate the paint a little, either by tilting the canvas or sometimes by moving it around with a stick or brush. 

In my more recent pour work there are some pieces which I have added deliberate imagery inspired by the natural shapes formed by the flow of the paint.
