Getting It Right

Good studio day. Every pour I made is beautiful.  I’m trying to decide what made the difference.  Technique is certainly part of it.  Today I mainly did dirty cup pours on a canvas loaded with either black or white paint. I made sure to run the cup around the canvas to get the edges covered properly, and I engaged in a good bit of tilting to get the majority of the black or white paint to run off, leaving the color behind.  In a few cases I added extra paint, but I only had to do this on a few canvases.

I think the last two, where I used up all the leftover paint, are the most successful.
