Conceiving the ideas
Let’s deal with the elephant in the room first – that spin painting is easy and that it’s nothing new. I’m always happy to have that conversation and thankfully I already have over on my dedicated spin art page that covers processes and my own approach to the genre.
Ok great, so let’s move on.
This painting was conceived for one of my live painting streams that’s broadcast on the Swarez YouTube channel very Wednesday. On the week that Saturation Point was created the theme was spin painting (no great shock there) and as you can see in the video here I took my spin table into my paint pod for the live session.
What happened afterwards
If you choose to go check out the video of the whole stream (and I urge you to do exactly that) then you may see a difference in how I left the painting when I finished the broadcast and how it looks now in the pictures.
The reason is because I wasn’t quite done with it during the time I felt we should be on air. So after I said my thank-you’s and goodbyes I subtly began to make adjustments until I was at a point I could say it was done. Two further hours went by very quickly.
I’m very glad I did too as it now feels complete – which is a relief because I didn’t want to lose such a promising painting that’s full of wonderful colours, tonal shifts and textural elements.
