Title: Water World
Size: 17.75″ x 1″ deep
Water World is an abstract painting that was created using acrylic paint, pouring medium, and Floetrol on a round pine board.
Water World is an abstract pour painting on a round wooden board. It was one of my first attempts at doing a pour painting. It was also one of my first to use something called Floetrol.
The mix for this painting did an odd thing. The white sections are the exposed, but gessoed, wood beneath the paint. When the painting was wet, this looked simply like white paint (which I did use). However, I did pour on some unmixed Floetrol which dries clear. The white areas are actually just the clear Floetrol.
The end result of the painting turned out rather interesting. Those white areas reminded me of glacial ice. The overall blue color scheme and round shape made it look like a far off planet in space, hence the name. The movie of the same title didn’t actually occur to me until someone pointed it out. I completely forgot about that movie honestly.
