Painting Has Message

If you’ve seen my Facebook Page, June Rollins Art  or visited my DPW Gallery lately, you know of my recent fascination for creating Triad Trees. Below is today’s tree in process:

This loose way of tapping paint onto the paper is fraught with unpredictability. An aspect  I love because I can’t go on auto-pilot. I must stay connected to what the paint is doing and follow its lead. Corrections, if any, are a touch here or a lift there, so the art isn’t labored over.

Let The Title Come

This playful, spontaneous approach with no pre-planned sketch often provides insight as to what’s going on inside the artist. When dry, I step-back and ponder to see if a title emerges. Dreamscaping a way to awareness is fun and revealing :)

Simple Secret To Moody Watercolor Tree Effects

Don’t Interfere

Here’s a Triad Tree with a little more mood! Rather than leaving the background white, a wet-in-wet sky has been added simulating clouds. The sun is still shining through though :)

The effects seen in this watercolor are from very little brushwork. The sky is the only area the brush touched the paper. For tree foliage, pigment was tapped in. Tree trunk and branches were created with a palette knife.

The most important technique in this process is not interfering. To increase odds of pulling this off, step away from the painting, check e-mail, make a cup of coffee or change a load of laundry.

By not going back into the painting during this critical, incubation stage, the pigment and water naturally blend to form wonderful organic edges with varied intensity, hues and values.

Tone It Down And Mix It Up A Little

I didn’t like them at first, the Conservatory Collection was just a little too loud and garish.

Thank goodness Teakwood  from the Mariner Collection, has toned them down a bit and…

Piñata Rich Gold, super opaque and made with real, shimmering, gold flakes plus, Adirondack Gold Metallic Mixatives, also opaque, have mixed them up a little :)

Alcohol Ink Mixed Media

Dreamscape No. 575 was created with Conservatory Collection Adirondack Alcohol Inks plus Teakwood (from the Mariner Collection). The drop of gold in the sky is Adirondack Gold Metallic Mixative and the sprinkling of gold in the distant mountain and valley is Piñata Gold. I love the increased depth and sparkle from juxtaposing transparent inks with opaque, Metallic Mixatives.

But, that’s not all…

Not as easily seen, but essential in creating the subtle texturing and varied edges along with carving back to the white of the paper in foreground is my newest and most favorite medium being incorporated into the Dreamscaping Process, Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid.

Coming This Fall!
