  • This is really cool. Except that it says paintings by Holton Rower and theres mostly one lady doing all the pouring -_-

      It’s always about the person with the vision behind the project. It’s why we associate a director as the creator of a film, though hundreds of people work on them.

    We know exactly what happens when you pull a lot of color one after each other on a surface like this, but it is amazing how we can not stop watching this and keep being so fascinated about the result…so simple but so effective, specially on a big surface…it looks great…

    I really love it.
    It’s hypnotic and as someone has said even if we all know the result of adding colors to eachother makes, it works.
