I started using this unique painting style while I lived in the U.S. It was my host dad who introduced me to using syringes to paint with. The style gives the painting life and texture, and it makes the painting very interesting to look at. This way of painting is quite time consuming, and it makes it hard to cover big areas, but it is always worth it at the end. If you keep reading I will explain how some of the most important steps of the proses.
I can´t use canvas for this painting style as the paint would sink in to the fabric, and the special texture the syringes make would despair. Instead I use very light foam board that has a smooth front side that paint can´t sink in to. I then sketch the subject as accurate as needed.
I use thick acrylic paint when painting this style. The thick paint helps to preserve the texture that this style creates. I squeeze paint directly from the tube and into medical syringes with a special needle end.
Then I spray out the paint on to the sketch line by line. This I quite time consuming as I can only do one layer at the time, and then wait at least a day for the paint to dry. The important part is that I keep track of the proportions in the painting, so that the effect gets right.
