Looks to me like you've nailed this technique. The first one looks very Garyesque. I like what's you've done with the others. Nice job.
Thanks Danielle. I saw some examples with bigger bubbles. I tried to get a big one, but somehow it didn't happen. I think I'll try one with shorter drying time and/or thicker wet paint and see what happens.
It's amazing the differences you can get with different paint and how thickly it goes on or how many layers... the possibilites are endless. I have got small bubbles with gesso and even acrylic inks can make teeny bubbles.
Thanks Lea. Techniques should not be old I know, but somehow working on something mentioned two years ago in this site made me feel kind of silly.
great first attempt and i also like the green one best!Keep experimenting and enjoy it!
Thanks Elke. I'm really happy with such outcome considering it the first attempt. I think I'll make a bigger one.
Wow, great results Eliza! I just revisited the bubble technique too.It's such a great little trick to have up your artist sleeve and I bet it really gets people wondering.... "How did they do that?" Which is exactly what you want people to be saying.
Thanks Wendy :) I used to draw bubbles, but it's just too rigid, very forced sometimes. With this technique, I just love to see how bubbles are grown, and results are natural and spontaneous. I bet such visual quality simply draws people to touch them!
Hello Eliza, thanks so much for your kind comment !! I just checked out your bubble technique pics and wow, they are amazing !! wonderful :) I'll have to give this a go sometime ! I'm busy saving my eggshells also !! :) best wishes, Jacqui
Thanks Jacqui. I really love your work and I think this bubble technique will go well with your style of work too. Just try and see some wonders appear on your picture planes!
Fantastic results! Love your bubbles :) And it is awesome that you can take the technique and develop it further!!
Thanks Gary for showing the techniques! I've learned so much and it's a bunch of fun! I just painted a new canvas to play tomorrow, also blogged about it as well coz it's so exciting. I'll see what happens tomorrow. Will report soon :)
