Life in Moss by San-T Life in Moss by San-T
It might be quite weird, but I always loved moss, it's like mini grass but much more interesting. This painting like many others, started with a color scheme in mind, I wanted something calm and green.
Once I finished with the first layer, I left it for almost 2 months, not knowing where to go from there.. not really wanting to change anything. So even now, all that was added were the small details and washes of color and the first layer still shines through.

The process of it was quite frustrating for me, but I just love this painting, hope you'll like it.

Acrylic and a bit charcoal on 24x30" / 61x76 cm stretched canvas.

Maybe it's only because of the title, but I keep seeing the little black blobby bits as creatures with yellow eyes.  Makes it cute and whimsical to go with the calm of the green.

How do you get the very flowly lines? As it's something I've been wanting to do for ages but can't seem to figure out how to do it :| (Blank Stare)

Uhmm.. it seems I somehow missed your comment, I'm sorry for the delay.
The lines are created with dripping liquid acrylic while moving quite fast.. the movement then dictates how to paint falls onto the surface, mine for example are very circular... it sounds a bit complicated, but once you'll try it out, I'm sure you will figure it out=]

That's alright!

When you say liquid acrylic, have you just added water to it? or done something else? 
I look forward to experimenting and developing my own ides from your awesome work :)
