How Did You Do That?

Today's painting is a quick study in two techniques. First three colors were blended to create an undercoat on the canvas. This setup for about half-n-hour and then the green and blue top coats were applied blending them to creat a smooth topcoat.

While the two colors were still very wet, two pottery tools were used to scrape off the desired topcoat paint allowing the undercoat to come through. The thickness of the tool determined how much was scraped away.

This is just one technique I use to creat the appearance of fine lines in very thick, wet paint.

Have a great weekend.
