I did some research on color fields and pours. Some of the artists are: Clyfford Still, Stanley Hayter, Maurice Sapiro, and more.
Then I learned about Kim Keever (images below)...and my mind was blown clean off. CLEAN OFF. So clean in fact that I was able to reattach with no problems.
The long term plan: to create romantic/atmospheric paper landscapes/narratives by using a tank, water, paper (of course), and paint.
The short term plan: to figure out how to make clouds/blooms in water.
Why? This will help achieve a romantic atmosphere.
Then what? Figure out what paper forms will submerge properly in water, what distortions occur, etc.
Step 1: Ask myself a hundred questions why I want to do this. (Helps with figuring out how to word my reasons and make connections.)
Step 2: Gather materials.
Step 3: Experiment with different materials to determine viscosities, gravitational pulls, attractions, repellants, dripping methods, mixing ratios, etc.
Experimentation images to come!
