On doing the unthinkable
Working with fluid paint is everything but easy. It might look to some as thrown colors on a canvas - but to achieve any good results is twofold:
a) part chemist and mad scientist because the 'base' into which you mix the pigments took me over 8 months to decipher - and still not at my goal of a 100% full proof recipe.
That 100% pouring mix (an assemblage of different mediums and ingredients) means 'any' kind of paint (heavy body - medium body or liquid) will behave the same when mix together.
b) Knowing and learning and sometimes even relearning how chromatic (color shades) behave when in contact with each other.
I am a lifelong artist and graphic designer and tho one would think I've 'nailed it' - well I have many occurrences of 'mud' (over moving colors) as proof of contrary. Makes me want to pull my hair.
So why pursue it all?
I am an abstract painter (brush - spatula) and a pioneer in the uprising field of generative art (shooting and using mobile apps only).
Abstract painting + generative art have in common randomness. Fluid art is randomness on steroids - and I love it.

/pps Above paint I didn't like it and painted over - I did the unthinkable! I have learned a hard lesson. Let the art rest. Shoot it and give yourself perspective.
