Bubbles #2

Topics: Abstract Expressionism, abstract art, painting techniques, scrafito

This one was a lot of fun! I used layers upon layers of paint. Some of the circles are scratched into the layers using the other end of the paintbrush, and then more circles are painted on top of the layers.

I later learned that this technique of scratching into layers of paint is called scrafito - literally scratching through layers of paint.

I ended up doing a whole series of scrafito paintings - I'll get them photographed and up here soon.

Thanks for looking. You can see other paintings, photography, and jewelry designs at
