Your First Acrylic Painting: Drag Art
Better then Pollock!
You will need:
1. A surface to paint on
3. Acrylic paint
Begin by placing globs of paint near the edges of your (for example) canvas. Then use the flat side of the cardboard to drag the paint across the canvas. This can also be done with uneven edges of the cardboard to create some pretty cool effects. The paintings above are my first ever paintings, finished very quickly they still, two years later, hang over my bed. I am very happy with the way they turned out, especially with the faces in each one! That's the beauty of the drag art, when it's all said and done you just may find something you didn't expect, you love to make paintings, or theres a Scream mask in my art!
Here are some of my other drag art pieces!
