Caroline Larsen creates her interesting, and colorful, needlepoint style images entirely out of paint, using a most peculiar technique of her own invention. Here's how it's done:
Over several years she has developed a unique technique for applying paint: her works are created by squeezing undiluted oil paint through a bag outfitted with a serrated stainless steel tip resulting in an exceedingly thick, intricately woven oil painting. Using this piping process she is able to apply ribbons of paint that weave up and over themselves to create images.
Her works have such a uniquely textured look that it's natural to wonder how she does it, so now you know-she creates them with some custom formulated awesomeness.
