Oil and Water #1

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 9 April 2018 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

I finally started to get it right. Letting the oil forms take precedence rather than the air bubbles. :-)

Hopefully you'll find them getting better over time.

Oil and water medium where I used a clear baking dish that was held in place with my kitchen sink and a computer tablet was placed underneath with various color photos to get the backgrounds.

Photo captured March 5, 2018.

This is just gorgeous! I love the colors and the patterns. I tried this on Friday night after reading how you did it. It came out okay. The colors were not as bright as I would have liked and the bubbles lacked detail. I plan to try it again! 5*
