John, your art is so cool! I want to try to paint something inspired by your work. Could you give me some pointers? Specifically how to do the "drip" look you attain. Almost as though the picture is so intense that the athlete is dripping down the page. Thanks !

The way to get the drip effect is to use a watercolor brush and them get a lot of paint on your brush so that the paint is literally dripping off. Then paint and it will run down the canvas. Too much paint - to many runs. To little paint -no runs.
