Science-Art Scumble #3

"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. Sit back, have a coffee and enjoy.

Thanks for the link!

This is slightly off-topic but still science/art related: today I stumbled on an artist that I'm finding really interesting and I think you might too - Alexis Rockman. Maybe you're already familiar with his work? He seems to be fairly well known but I'd never heard of him till now.

Thanks SLW-L! I'm not familiar with his work. But I'll see if there's a way to add his site to the feed.

Very cool oils. Rhode Island School of Design has so many amazing alumni.

Thanks again!

Great links! I especially like the The Rings of Time. I have a similar idea written out on my projects list which I will now abandon since this blows my idea out of the water! Fantastic!

Do yours anyway! Things change in the execution, it could be just as fascinating.
