Christopher Mathie: Live Painting Performance
This video demonstrates Christopher Mathie creating a large scale abstract acrylic painting split into two canvases. The canvas is pre painted before the painting demonstration is begun and contained an abundance of reds, maroons and crimsons to give a heavily textured look!
Using a series of techniques like scraping, dabbing, splattering Mathie successfully and freely moves the acrylic paint around the canvas to give a series of unusual textures and color combinations.
The acrylic paint is applied both thinly and thickly to the canvas and with the use of a large flat brush greater areas are covered to speed up his painting process. A spray bottle is used to dampen the paint as he reworks areas which have been covered previously to merge old and new colors together. The finished abstract painting has a very fresh and contemporary feel to it and is a great example of how to paint abstract art in a fun, free and easy way. The video is accompanied by live music which has a very calming influence on the mood.
