Size Matters When Less is More


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 less with more, by using less paint on the Dripscape to allow the natural grain of the wood to essentially paint the piece. The original painting above is one of the first pieces he has created in Going Big with Less.
