‘Against the Grain’

ATG series #1© Reina Cottier Art 2013
#1

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…..

Great weekend to all! 🙂

June Update…

*************

I have been working on this piece below for a while, and Im not sure about it at all, slow progress is foreign to me and I would love to just paint over it, my rule of thumb in general is that if its not flowing fast, forget it, but there is a small niggle,,,, keep going, its going to be ok lol… so I am 🙂

June 12

this one is finished and sold… its off to Australia. …

I think Im coming to the end of my Shades of White series, well I mean my obsession with it, there is ALWAYS a few more that sneak out when I least expect it, but I feel another phase morphing its way over me and Ill been keen to see what happens next week in the studio! 🙂

Hope everyone has a great week!

Ciao!

May update:

May 20(c) Reina Cottier Art 2013

So, continuing with my latest obsession:

my ‘Shades of White’ series #5 above, complete and sold. This one is my favourite!

Totally in my element to be painting these at the moment, loving the backgrounds, they look like a mix of galaxy and marble to me. I create them with a combo of water spraying, sponging and big/wide paint brush on its side,  I layer this up, and sometimes let dry inbetween layers, but because Ms Gemini here needs INSTANT results, we are not too fond of ‘waiting for things to dry’, no, noooooo waiting for me…. of course, IF I do have to wait, I have another 6 paintings to continue on with on my never ending conveyor belt of creations. 🙂

………also completed and sold #4 below: May 15 final iphone(c) Reina Cottier Art 2013

and I have started 2 more!

in progress: May 22
