Over the months that I have been trying different ways to make art and I found that I enjoyed working on small art, from 3″ x 4″ wood cradles or 3″ x 6″ primed canvas, as long as it is at least 2″ minimum on one side. Perhaps it’s because of being a frugal artist or the lack of space but somehow my min art which usually comes from scraps of canvas, wood or paper turns out well (at least I think so). I’m starting to think, that may be the one of the reasons why I like working on my original art pendants, because it is small in size. Here are a few of those small art I have done recently and over the last few months. You will notice that each one has a different style and that is because these are mostly experiments in colour, medium, material, or style.
Painting without a brush
This is one of my favourites to date. I used paper towel and a small palette knife to paint this. I did not have a reference for this painting but just whatever came to mind at the time. I was inspired to try this style of painting from a workshop I attended last September.
Acrylic painting, 3″ x 6″ canvas
Here’s another one. This is even smaller than the one above. I was experimenting with some leftover green paint and glossy medium. A palette knife was used to create this painting.
“Blue Green Stillness”
Acrylic on raw canvas
It is a great idea to experiment and find your style. Let me know what other experiments you’ve done in your art.
