Transitions 2 by Moira Sutton



Box Canvas
Creative Expressions Glass Beads Medium
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Paints – Carbon Black, Titanium White, Dark Grey Value 3, Cadmium Red Hue, Pyrole Red and Napthol Red Light

This is an abstract painting which forms part of a series I have been working on about “transitions” the point or process where one thing becomes another light to dark/land to sea/child to adult etc. One of the things I really like about abstract is that although I know exactly what I was thinking and trying to communicate in the painting each person who sees it will see something different and everyone’s view is right. 

The canvas is a 10 x 14 box canvas onto which I had put modelling paste through a stencil a long time ago and left as it wasn’t what I wanted. So I went back to it and added lots more modelling paste randomly and a mixture of the Gel Medium and Glass Beads. When dry I worked into it with the acrylic paints. I must say I had a really good time with it.
