Painting dots… lots of dots
It’s been pretty quiet around here lately, I know.
Here’s what I’m up to these days:
Due to the popularity of paintings like this one, I’m focusing on painting more like it.
People often ask how I paint all those little perfectly-round dots on my abstract paintings. This is how: by hand, one dot at a time, using a small round brush dipped into fluid acrylic paint. The painting lies flat so the drops of paint don’t run. It’s a slow, contemplative process.
And yes, I do need to be very careful not to let my hand or sleeve smudge the wet dots. Fortunately I’m good at being careful. I haven’t smudged one yet! (Let’s hope I didn’t just jinx myself by saying that.)
