No Regrets is a spin painting from my collection of small radial spin art.
There’s something very compelling about the combination of gold, black and red. I like to use them whenever I can. In fact I had tried a few variations before I landed on this one as I was desperate to use this combo as soon as I could.
The early variations didn’t work so well I’m afraid. However, I stripped back the complexity of what I wanted to do and keep the principles simple: one base coat of white followed by a repeating double loop of red that was allowed to move just enough to cover the edges.
Added to this was the black and gold star radials. First the black – applied in a kind of repeating loop like the red – then the gold which was thinned down a little to make it move towards the outside.
I only really wanted to have a few thin splines reach the edge otherwise I’d end up covering the black, red and white layers. So the gold was the most critical part of the painting. I needed just enough volume to cover the centre but not too much that it covered the rest. I got it wrong previously and that’s why the early variations were wrong. I guess practice makes perfect.
This painting is shipped ready to hang and, although I prefer it hung like a diamond you can hang it anyway you like. Worldwide shipping is available – costs are calculated at the checkout before you decide to buy. Any problems, drop me a mail.
