Drip Painting

I know I’ve said a ton of times before that I love projects that have a Jackson Pollack feel to them. I could probably link to at least 5 of them, and all of them would be among my favorites.

Unlike those that just end up looking that way, this project was specifically inspired by his style of art.

We worked on the floor with slightly watered down paint to ensure that it would be able to drip off the brush easily enough.

The plan had been to drip paint onto one side of the paper and then fold it in half and see what happened on the other side. But I ended up being so happy with the drippy look of the first half that I really didn’t want to ruin it by folding it!

Love Bug really wanted to do the folding part, though, so I just folded it a little and pressed very lightly so that it didn’t change too much but still had that effect to a degree.
