40 cups of paint later...


This commission was for 2 pieces which were 100cm x 120cm x 2cm in colours with a tropical sea theme. This is the largest sized work I have done so far, so my first step was to do a color test on a smaller canvas (in this case a CD which I had prepped for pouring) as below




Once these colours were approved by the client I set out to buy the ones I had used, but on a much larger scale! The ones I used were Pebeo's Paynes Grey, Irridescent Blue Green, and Ultramarie blue, Dayler and Rowneys Ultramarine Blue, and Windsor and Newton's Titanium White: 


The canvases also recieved a base coat of cyan to stop any white from coming through onto the finished work:




I then mixed the colours with water and a small quantity of Liquitex pouring medium to prep 40 cups of paint in the correct consistency.




Once this was done, I created the pieces one after the other using puddle pour technique


 and then a hair dryer to move the paint around and create the 'waves' as seen in the 2 finished pieces below.
