The Feelings of Summer
Mixed Media
(acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil)
What can be done with paint throwing? Well the possibilities are endless. As I was doing my first shot at throwing paint I started tearing off the plastic on this canvas.  Only part of it tore off.  I thought "what if I threw paint at this with plastic on it then tore off the plastic." With the colors laying at my feet I started throwing.  These colors reminded me of this picture I took a few years ago. The colors match my daughters shirt and the happy feeling of the first bike ride of the summer. Even the dog was smiling! One problem. I don't do landscapes and never have worked on canvas. I don't paint.  I use colored pencils or graphite. Is it possible to use colored pencils and watercolors on a canvas? The answer is yes! One more stroke of luck...there's a show at called Spoke & Art that is bike themed and everything falls into place!

 In the Beginning...

Half way into the paint throwing. I'm getting the nice bright colors in so when I throw in the warm colors these will show through.
