A few words of inspiration
Practicing Pollock’s technique at first was seemingly pretty easy dripping industrial paint on canvas but as the painting got intense it seems as if it has a life of it own and the hand must match its demands and become more and more accurate in the movement of the wrist.
The colors start to blend in one another creating a bold texture,
melting in one another, fighting each other for dominance.
The back aches the arm is sore and yet the movement can’t be stopped.
Not until the painting decides to let the colors rest.
Paul Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956) was an influential American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. Technically, an important predecessor is surrealism, with its emphasis on spontaneous, automatic or subconscious creation.Jackson Pollock’s dripping paint onto a canvas laid on the floor is a technique that has its roots in the work of André Masson,Max Ernst and David Alfaro Siqueiros
He had a volatile personality and struggled with alcoholism all of his life.
Pollock died at the age of 44 in an alcohol-related, single-car crash.
