For a class project we did a poured painting of a Venetian canal scene.

Once again, I neglected to get an initial photo, but the following photo represents at least two pours of red (quin. rose), yellow (hansa) and blue (cobalt).

Misket was first applied to any of the buildings where I wanted to keep all white - around the windows and doors.  Then I taped around the edges of the buildings and poured the darker shadows.

The sky was poured by wetting that area and then holding the painting upside down so the blue did not run into the building.

What a great start to this piece. The pours are so clean and transparent. I have tried this technique but often it can be a challenge to get the right values. That doesn't seem to be a problem with yours. Well hope you have a great weekend.
