*New* – Glue Drawing Meditation

We’ve entered a new realm of Drawing Meditation ;-) I’ve had a recent urge to experiment with new directions, materials, and techniques. Here is the first of many…

First up: Glue. Following is the interesting process and evolution behind the final piece:

I…

  • …created a Drawing Meditation on watercolor paper with white liquid glue.
  • …was patient as it dried.
  • …doused it with water and black watercolor paint and sprinkled it with salt to experiment with texture.
  • …again, patiently waited as it dried.
  • …came back the next day and hated it (which is in my opinion, is when the best art can be created…when you already think you’ve ruined a piece, then there’s no pressure about ‘messing up’).
  • …decided to add some color.
  • …felt color was an improvement, but something still wasn’t right.
  • …opted to peel the dried glue from the paper (why not, what did I have to lose?).
  • …realized that chipping away dried glue with my fingernails is a tedious and painful process but definitely worth the outcome. The piece was complete!

  1. Very cool! Beautiful piece! I have been messing around with using white liquid glue and acrylic paints lately. I am having fun kind of figuring out what I can do with it. Not sure where the outcome will take me but having fun getting there. Looks like that was the same for you. :)

      Thank you :-) You are right, it’s great to simply experiment and be surprised with each varying outcome. Not ever sure what to expect…thus I LOVE it!
