Making a splash
This is one of the fun bits...
The next stage is covering the canvas with splashes and scrapes of paint. I used to try to do a freehand version of the final painting for this. Now I just make random marks over the whole canvas. I’m using the left-over paint in my squeeze bottles (we’ll get on to that later) which would otherwise go to waste – I know I use a lot of paint, but it wasn’t until I started using this method that I realised how much I was having to throw away.
