Charcoal rain

Inspired by local Dublin graffiti artist Maser, I crafted this drip painting last summer. It’s really straight forward and the paint does all the work. I originally made it bright green drips, but it was too bright for me, so I repainted it in charcoal to better suit my living space.
Also shown is our Dandelion Urban Gnome we picked up at a fancy Interior Design opening evening where the {pre-recession} champagne was flowing and this is the result of our drinking. Money well spent.

    Hello 🙂

    I was just wondering exactly how you created this? Did you use water to make the paint run or did you end up just putting a lot of paint at the top and allowing it to slide down the canvas?

      Hi Cass! I actually had a very runny acrylic tube of paint, but I'd say it was the equivalent of adding a little bit of water to thicker paint. It was definitely runny enough to drip.

      I painted the canvas light grey, they drizzled the darker paint along the top. It's sideways in the above picture though.

      I hope this helps! Best of luck 🙂

    Thanks for the advice and instruction 🙂 … I have yet to put paint to canvas, but soon enough. I hope it looks as good as yours does.
