Firemoon by Acrylicdreams Firemoon by Acrylicdreams
I actually don't have a title for this.
It's a rather small painting I've finished this week.
This started as an experiment - I tried a new technique to get some detailed random textures: my first decalcomonia.
Then I painted over it and covered many of the areas with what just came into my mind.
Acrylics on watercolour cardboard, 24 cm x 32 cm

Could have named it Infernal Engine. Sounds metal as fuck!

Thanks!
Btw, I've just ordered the recent double-cd version of the album you use as your profile pic (already have the original vinyl).

Yes, especially the first three albums (but I've also ordered the fourth one finally).

Yeah, the first 3 albums were them at their best! The rest were okay. But their latest one, Hadeon, was better than their previous efforts, to be sure.

I have a hard time finding names for my art as well.  It's always a pleasure to see new art from you, Markus!  I had never heard the term decalcomonia before, does this mean you took various parts of drawings and re-arranged/glued them to another surface, and then painted over them?  No matter what, I love the atmospheric effects- it is hard not to be reminded of the hellish wildfires going on in the world right now.

Hey Paul, thanks a lot!
To be honest, I also had to research the term, I once knew the word (although I haven't been familiar with it until the age of over 30), but forgot about it (you can find a description of it in the wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surreali… + en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decalcom…).

I appreciate the information, I am a little surprised this technique's existence has eluded me for all these years! :lol:  I had been experimenting with making random shapes with the brush and then finding forms in it, but this is so much more intriguing.  Some of the examples I found on Youtube produced amazing results which would be near impossible to create by hand... or at least it would take forever to render.

Yes, it leads to interesting results and on this painting of mine, the textures are so fine and detailed, I wouldn't have managed it to paint them with a brush.
