"A painting technique in which semi-opaque or thin opaque colors are loosely brushed over an underpainted area so that patches of the color beneath show through."From The Artist's Handbook, by Ray Smith.
A weekly digest to highlight some of the posts I found most interesting, most provocative, or otherwise caught my eye from the Science Artists Feed, and other sources. Sit back, have an espresso and enjoy.
This week, there are not only entries from deviantArt, but I've also added some photography and comics.
Note: the Scumble may stumble some time over the next couple of weeks - my wife and I are expecting our first child, and I may take a break so I can dress the newborn up like a reindeer.
