Extraordinary Brush-Less Paintings - My Modern Metropolis - StumbleUpon
Amy Shackleton, who is only 25-years-old, is a unique artist. While her paintings use tons and tons of paint, she doesn't use paintbrushes to create them! Rather, she squeezes paint onto canvases and then allows the paint to naturally drip. She then rotates the canvas to control the direction of the drips, making her paintings appear natural yet controlled. The subjects of many of her paintings are also quite interesting. They often feature a blend of the natural world and the man-made world, such as a river in the streets, trees growing with skyscrapers and cities in mountainous ranges. We were so intrigued by her process that we decided to ask Amy some questions. When did you first know that you wanted to become a professional artist? As a child, I taught myself the basics by drawing and sketching in my free time. Your process is so unique. I worked on unstretched canvas at first, so the surface was flexible and I could move it whichever way I wanted. How do you stay creative?
