SOFA CHICAGO 11/11

posted by SHELLEY BRUCAR

A few photos from SOFA Chicago for Tracy McCabe Stewart who moved to sunny California and could not join us at Navy Pier this year.

 

  Artist Bihn Pho, who we both love.  His work is quite intricate and finely detailed which gives the viewer so much to explore.

DRIP PAINTING – Part II

posted by SHELLEY BRUCAR

Another beautiful morning to paint outside, and good timing because I was not thrilled with my last dripping paint results.  Things are looking much better today though.

I mixed pink and red with a VERY small amount of blue to get fuschia.   If you put in more than a drop of blue, you will get a lovely purple, but that is not what I was going for here.  Then I mixed blue with a very light torquoise and a more green torquoise to get the torquoise-blue color.  I mixed both colors right in a squirt bottle and added water to thin the paint.  I hung my fabrics, sprayed them with the hose, and proceeded to drip the paint.  After applying all the paint, I lightly misted the fabric to enhance the flow of the colors.

I painted a second piece using the fuschia already mixed and an orange mixed from yellow and a SMALL touch of red, same process as above.
