Recent experiments in textured painting have led to what I’m calling “scratch paintings.” As I was painting the previous one I was listening to Jane Davies talk online about how she was scratching into her painting and I thought, “Yes, let me do that.” Not that I’ve never done this before but this time it was different. I really got into it. And so, I did a number of them that are in my last post. Then it began to evolve into something that I really like for me. What do you think?
But this next one came just before this and I though today was a good day to share it. It also has a painting technique that has been developing in my studio, which has taken on a life of it’s own. More about this in another post.
And now, before I leave you for today, I want to encourage you all to go vote for what I did with my first scratch painting on Spoonflower. It’s called The Green Way. A photo of it is in my last post. Unfortunately, it’s hard to find but if I find an easier way I’ll LYK on Facebook.
