Downtown Rain | Oil on Canvas
Downtown Rain is a 60" x 48" squeegee oil painting. This painting came with a multiple of challenges. First, finding a squeegee large enough to smear oil paint up and down this rather large canvas. Next, finding a medium which, when mixed with oil paint, formed the just-right viscosity and also dried quickly. Another challenge lies in the fact that squeegee painting allows you to smear any color anywhere, in any quantity, at any time. That's a lot of freedom! Making choices within that freedom is a lot like walking up and down the toothpaste aisle in the supermarket. Do I want whitening, tartar control or fresh breath? Color choices are similar. So many colors to choose from...so just have fun!
Squeegee painting is not right for you if you worry about paint dropping all over your floor, your clothes and even your hair!
