Blown Paint

The design on this painting is created by placing drops of gouache (opaque, water based paint) onto the paper and carefully blowing on the paint while wet to direct the color.  This technique, when used in a document like the pictured award, requires both freedom and control.   Working very quickly allows a blending of multiple colors to create a marbling effect in miniature – that’s one of the unexpected results!   Tiny raised gold leaf dots catch light and bring the piece to life.
