Ha, try to say that 10 times very fast.

I have made this very sensitive, romantic little canvas (30 by 30 centimeters) following the techniques I have tried out this week. Dripping and dropping paint, flattening and pulling paint off with pieces of paper, adding circled (and empty) dots with a cap of a water bottle, adding dots with a button (full dots).



Here are some new pull-offs from the paintings I have made this week. They are much different from the last pull-offs I had added this week. It is a continuing story of experimenting and searching. Using new material that leads to great result. 



I went from drips to dots this week, and as they say ... there is only a small step between drips and dots ... ok, maybe they don't say that. It just happened as a logical next step (in my little brain) in my search towards a more abstract language, and also my favourite experiment at this moment: painting without a brush, hence manipulating coincidence.



Here are some pull-offs from the paintings I have made in the last weeks. I call them pull-offs because that's what they are, they are used to pull off the paint: pieces of paper acting as a medium to remove some of the paint I have applied first.





As I continue my experiment with removing and adding paint in a non traditional way, thus not with brushes but with paper and other materials, ... I have made this follow-up for one of my latest paintings. I have added some dripping which looks great when the paint of the drips is flattened and thus becoming a larger drip because of the pressure of the paper that was used to remove a part of the paint.




What better way to start the new week by mixing my tones ...
