Crowd-Sourced Art

Work in Progress

I didn’t get very far with my painting today. In fact I only dripped the frisket onto my watercolor paper. For those of you just joining me, I have settled on a method for creating drip paintings. I begin with a liquid latex (also known as frisket) that, when dry, repels water and watercolor pigment. This means, after painting an area in which frisket is applied, the area remains unpainted (white), when the frisket is removed.

After letting the frisket pattern dry, I think about how to add color to best complete the experiment. Here are some examples of previous works: Opera Rose Fantasy; Self Inspiration; Abstract 060515.

Today I would like to present my first stage of painting and ask you, dear reader, how you see this work evolving. I’m not sure how much art is crowd sourced, probably a lot, but this is my first time trying it.

Here is my paper with frisket applied:

Work in Progress – Any Ideas?

This piece could be turned upside down or rotated 90 degrees, if that would aid in visualizing a finished piece. I welcome your ideas, as I consider my own thoughts about how to proceed.




Thank you for your participation.
