More fun with pouring medium. I managed to get some squeeze bottles so I can control the pouring more than just out of the side of a plastic bowl. It was fun. At one point I had a bottle in each hand and was just swirling all over the place. I felt like a kid. After I had all these colors I got a toothpick and started swirling within the puddles. It's a psychedelic mess, but it was fun. I painted the background white this time because when I painted on black I learned that the medium makes the paint dry slightly transparent so the colors seemed a little dingy. When the paint on this dried the places that hadn't been mixed were bright, but it seems as though the colors that I swirled with the toothpick continued to blend together after I was done. Those colors still seemed to dry muddy, but the unblended ones remained very bright. More fun to come later.
