322 - STRING ART I - DAVE EDWARDS - MIXED MEDIA - 2011 by 


First of all, please read these instructions from Linmarie.

Although spray-cans produce the best results, I ttried the acrylic method. I used string soaked in watery acrylic paint. I then used coloured pencils and fineliners.

As an exercise in using one’s imagination I thoroughly recommend it – thank you Lynmarie.

Here is how my picture looked before I set to work on it with the coloured pencils:

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    very creative, dave… of course, you did it!! love the colors, and your design is spot on. i love to do stuff like this…. I’ve done what i call pounding hearts, where i smash flowers with a hammer between two sheets of heavy paper, then use a tissue to remove the pulp from the flowers. the natural dyes of the flowers would soak into the paper… a mistake would happen from time to time, and i would do something like you did above with it… wonderful creation, my friend!

  • Thanks. The snowdrops are starting to come out in our garden now. I wonder if Trish would mind me squashing them for the sake of art … maybe not :)

    I love these kinds of works. The method of drawing on your imagination to create an image our brain understands has been one of the best ways to expand our knowledge. Great work Dave.

  • Thanks – I couldn’t have put it better msyelf :)

    Oh, wow, you did an amazing job. I am so really proud of you :)

  • Hi Mary, I take on board your comment about the string being too wet. Much as I admire Lynmarie’s work with string art, I am adapting the technique to use as a catalyst for abstract drawings. Should I maybe have used a stronger mix of acrylic and wiped the string with tissue before applying it? I don’t have any string so I have been using that green twine one uses for tying plants in the garden. It’s not very porous, but in a way it all adds to the unpredictability of the technique. I can’t use the spray can method as that doesn’t leave any white paper. I have three more to do.
