Scumble #10

Scumble:

"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 highlight of some of posts I found interesting, most provocative, or otherwise caught my eye from the Science Artists Feed, and other sources. Sit back, have a latte with cinnamon (no foam) and enjoy.

Excellent linkpile (linkpile?) as ever, I just have one minor correction: The Han Solo picture isn't drawn by Dr. Jerry Harris, but by Luke Campbell.

Thanks ScottE! Fixed. Whew. That explains the lack of Han Solo on Dr. Harris's page when I went there.
