Six years ago while attending the University of Florida’s School of Art and Art History, Megan Larmie developed a new method of painting with professor John Westmark. Instead of using a brush on canvas, Larmie applies layers of paint with large palette knives and squeegees. Larmie pulls thin layers of paint across wood or masonite panels in a manner similar to screen printing. Some layers of paint are mixed with varnish and iridescent additive giving the work a pearlescent, color-changing effect. Other layers are spray painted, masked with tape, and sanded. Each painting has at least fifty individual layers.
