‘Against the Grain’

New Series!
‘Against the Grain’

Aptly named, acrylic on canvas, abstract wood look backgrounds  with my Reina style korus & swirls atop.

I decided to try and create a more textured background for my shapes & colours.

Not at all planned or by design, I stumbled upon this wood look background and love it!

So set forth to put varies combinations of colour, swirl and curl on different shades and ‘wash’ of board.
I like how the spirals/korus ‘pop’ off the board, an illusion of 3D.

I really like the white wash board background of #3 above, I think so far this is my favourite,

although I am experimenting with many shades and tones of board.
SO the top 3 there are complete, (top 2 are sold), one above For Sale….

the next load of pics are all Works In Progress…..

 Have lots more creative energy for this series, so will continue in that flow until I lose interest, and then it will be onto something else.

Great weekend to all! 🙂

    1. thanks!! its been an interesting process discovering how best to achieve it, after stumbling across it, I then coldnt remember how I did it LOL!! I now have it almost sussed, but not really, otherwise they’d all look the same, … and I like that element of surprise for myself. 🙂
