Size Matters

The evolution of Chopstick Drip Art continues to progress, with artist Peter G. Buchan focusing on going "Bigger with Less."  Dripping paint from a chopstick requires distance from the medium, and with bigger sizes even more distance is required between the drip of the line and the surface.

Buchan's latest studies are large Dripscapes that challenge the artist to maintain perspective, depth and composition while finagling a Chopstick with a 1-foot line of oozy, drippy paint.  And he is making more with less -- that is, less paint. He is now relying more on the use of the natural wood grain to essentially paint the piece. 

The original painting above is one of the first Dripscapes he painted, going big with less.
