Abstract impression of Bonfire Night

Bonfire Night Impression

On 5th November we have our Bonfire Night in the UK when we burn an effigy of Guy Fawkes on our bonfires and let off spectacular fireworks. I have happy memories of when I was a child when we had jacket potatoes roasted on the fire, parkin, treacle toffee and toffee apples, etc., whilst watching the displays. I used a 6" x 6" piece of glossy photopaper for this abstract impression of Bonfire Night. I mixed black, red and gold acrylic paint in separate pots with added PVA glue, then poured some of each colour in random lines over the paper. At the top end I poured a thicker line of black paint, then using a damp piece of kitchen roll I gently swiped this from top to bottom, creating cells and shapes on the way. I tweaked some colours with a cocktail stick to encourage different shapes.
