Wednesday @ Connections – I paint with leather…



3 & 6 are Enemies by Ross W

Above; Acrylic paint on newsprint, the paint was applied with a leather fabric swatch. I applied paint to the swatch and thinned it with water. The leather surface would resist absorbing the paint and water allowing application to the work surface creating these random obscure shapes. I then layered the technique and pressed the surface with more news print to avoid loading the surface up with too much water. The news print very easily distorts when mediums are applied to heavily.

I haven’t measured this piece but I estimate it to be about 18 Inches in height and maybe 24 Inches in width. Enjoy!
