“Dreams” Painting

This is a painting from my art journal. It is acrylic on paper.

I used many layers heavy with water to create a fluid effect. It has a really organic feel to me. I really liked how this one turned out. I may paint a canvas black and mount it on the canvas.

This painting is relatively small, only 8.5×5.5 in. I would like to begin doing larger paintings. I have two larger canvases that I will be working on in the next days coming up.

Normally I like blues and muted colors, but I like how the red stands out in this one. Not too much to overwhelm the other colors.

Painting is relaxing and therapeutic for me. I paint nearly every day, usually multiple paintings are going at one time. That is because they need time to dry between layers. I need to be able to work on something all the time.
