Meet Fluidity - An Inner View
Meet Fluidity is a painting I made of my magical swan friend named "Fluidity".
I don't really have a prescribed method when it comes to art. Every painting or artwork I make is created uniquely, and is about discovering ways to express and traverse unchartered dimensions and new ground.
Meet Fluidity started as a little pen sketch with no name, then it became a slightly bigger pencil sketch on a piece of scrap paper (on a side note: I have lots of scrap paper from discarded drafts of the book I am currently writing, to my surprise, I later saw the back of the scrap paper I used and it happened to be one of the few parts of my book where the beloved Swan of "Swan Lake", makes an appearance, perfect!)
I took a few photos of my hands in this position for reference, but it was challenging to get the right position before the camera timer went off! So I ended up combining a few angles.
Then I did something I don't usually do, I lightly sketched the design directly onto a black canvas, where as I normally start painting without sketching. From there I took it in small steps, with simple and fairly short sessions.
I actually painted the inside hands, including the inside palms, before adding the water, as you can see here...
Another thing makes this painting a little different is, just for fun, I used glitter paint to highlight and accentuate both the aqua colored background and the water's surface where Fluidity is floating (by the way, Fluidity Floats along with a few other titles, were runners up in choosing a name for the painting) I love the subtle sparkle it created in these areas :)
All in all, the pictures do not do the actual painting or its colors justice! I guess you will either have to come and see my painting in person or spark up that imagination to get a better idea of what it truly looks like <3!
