Video: Deliberately Letting Paint Run

When I say I work with fluid paint, deliberately letting it run, I sometimes get a blank “that’s nice dear” look from people. So here’s a short video clip giving an example, a step in what will be a roses painting where I leave the paint to drip dry. On this occasion I’d been applying fluid white (think: consistency of ink) onto a horizontal canvas (balanced on the feet of my easel), onto a not-entirely-dry underpainting, the colours of which then mix with the white.
