Spatter Painting No. 31…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s featured letter of the alphabet is the capital ‘L’. A strong upstanding sort of letter is the capital ‘L’, but he can be vulnerable to gusts of wind from the right; a wind from the left he is fine with, but when the wind is from the right he always gets one or two of the other letters to sit on his horizontal element to prevent him tipping over.

Oh, it seems ages since I showed you one of my ‘spatter’ paintings. Here’s a nice one, it’s on thick Bockingford watercolour paper and is about 29″ x 21″ in size.

Spatter 31 (29 x 21)It is done in acrylic paint and the outlines are in black ink (Rotring Tikki Graphic pen).
Do you think anyone would have this on their living room wall, or is it a bit too aggressive and too full of movement? Would it constantly draw the eye as you were trying to watch the TV? Perhaps you’d have to put a cloth over it, as you would over the cage of an annoyingly loquacious parrot or budgerigar… I’m sure someone would find it attractive…

  1. I reckon this would look nice in one of those posh contemporary flats with the exposed brickwork wall. On an oversized canvas so it really catches the eye. Of course, such places don’t have a tv – well not visible anyway. Its normally in one of those secret hidden chambers that is only revealed by remote control. 😀

  2. I see a woman’s figure, shimmying towards me, hips first. Not sure yet if she has a big round head or is wearing something. Leave it with me
