Being Negative is the title and that's how I felt with this. Abstract is not a norm for me but reading all the methods particularly for those swirly renditions I had to have a go. I had a forgotten canvas and gesso'd it. I mixed PVC glue with a little water and poured onto a cardboard sheet, I then tricked and splashed black acrylic on to this , tipped the cardboard to start the colour spreading then dipped the canvas. The result was a very rewarding pattern that resembled a beach and sea waterline. Satisfied I left it. Went back an hour later and it had completely changed. Tried to recover the idea using salt and air pressure. It just got worse and worse. So left it as a grey mass with white crystal blotches. Horrible. Days later.. Not one to give up i tried a different method by crisscrossing masking tape randomly across and down the canvas using pallet knife and brush work i splodged black, white, and a mix onto the area. I had had a look at some of Picasso's work and how he put limbs and eyes in random places, so I put a pair of eyes into the area. When I took the tape off this was the result ... A face.. and My other half said it looks a bit like a negative of me :(
