Science-Art Scumble #8: Super Holiday Special!

"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 a cinnamon-laced eggnog and enjoy.

There are enough Holiday pieces of science-based art out there, I hadda put them into one post!  Please enjoy this special edition of the Science-Art Scumble.
