“Flow” Paintings

Posted in Acrylic Paintings, Completed Works, Mixed Media on 2014.10.26 by jalachan

I finally scanned in a slew of “Flow”-style paintings. The “Flow” style is designed around allowing the acrylic ink to inform what becomes of the painting rather than starting with a plan. Sometimes this becomes an abstracted work which possesses design elements only and many other times it becomes figurative.

2014.10.21 - Shoal

As I’m teaching a workshop at Affaire d’Art this coming weekend regarding the “Flow” style, I’ll be scanning in some smaller works using the technique of the class. This is Shoal, so named because that is what a group of squid is called. Although these are abstracted, they generally give that kind of feeling.

I recently completed two different pieces: the design for the wings tattoo I intend to get on my back, which mirrors my hip tattoos; and Slipping Away, a print illustration for my comic C’est La Mort.
