The energetic splashes and moving lines of drip painting have always sparked my imagination. There is a freedom that comes with this technique. I like that I must resign at least some level of control to gravity as fluid lines are formed. But, just as there is freedom, this technique also requires an intricate attention to detail. In my Drip Series, I strive to experiment with different tools and textures to manipulate the paint in specific angles, adding to the sense of movement and energy. I use toothpicks and razors to extend the flow of fine lines in various directions.
