Technique

I’ve started a new series of floral paintings, using a variety of pouring techniques to create flowers rather than traditional painting tools.

Digital Art

December 30, 2019 Technique

Digital Composite A digital composite combines two (or more) photographs to create one final image. With the advent of digital photography, digital editing, and an ever-expanding set of features and tools available, an infinite number of possibilities are available. This technique could be considered to be a new form of collage, using digital images and […]

Timeless Series These paintings are part of my “Timeless” series. I worked on them over a 6 month period from January to July 2019. I start by creating a frame, or tray around the board and then pour acrylic paint, opalescent paints and other materials into it. Next I pour in a thick layer of liquid […]

Metallix

October 26, 2018 Technique

The Metallix series is inspired by raw minerals, such as gold, silver and copper. The introduction of iridescent metallic paints, sand and heavy acrylic mediums, mixed with my recipe of paints and chemicals, creates the effect of raw minerals as they appear in the earth. Visit the Metallix Gallery page to view all the work […]

There is some controversy over whether or not “Paint Pouring” is considered an art form, or simply a technique.  I think it is just a way to get paint onto the surface. It’s more important what happens to the paint while it’s on the surface than how it’s applied.  Painting is all about controlling the […]

My Technique

February 9, 2018 Technique

Painting in a purely natural way My goal, as a painter, is to use that energy to create. I don’t use a brush, I use force to control the paint. Chemical interactions, forced air, heat, gravity and vibration. I want to use the same forces that created all life to paint.  

Synthesis

September 1, 2017 Technique

Using chemistry and energy to create I’ve titled my new series “Synthesis” which literally means “The production of chemical compounds by reaction from similar materials”. I think this describes this series perfectly. It is the result of combining various paints and acyclic bases together to create a unique and exciting visual reaction. The connection between […]

Organic Design

February 25, 2017 Technique, Thoughts

Shaping My Paint I never plan the end result of a painting, except for choosing the colours. Once I start, the painting begins to take on a shape on it’s own: although there is an element of design that goes into the painting as it progresses and grows into it’s own form. The design choices […]

Terraform

October 21, 2015 Technique, Thoughts

New Technique Terraforming is the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying a planets atmosphere, temperature, surface, topography or ecology to be similar to the environment of Earth. This seemed like the perfect title to describe my new series since it relates to my painting process. With this series I’ve started using different types of thick acrylic […]

Evolution

June 6, 2015 Technique, Thoughts

New Series This is the first painting in a new series I call Evolution. I believe the word “organic” is the best word to describe my style of painting, as it relates to all living things derived from plants or animals. Coincidently acrylic and other paints, are produced with organic polymers and have similar properties […]
