Scumble #12

"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 semi-weekly highlight of some of posts I found interesting, most provocative, or otherwise caught my eye from the Science Artists Feed, and other sources. Higher than normal number of posts emanating from here in Toronto this edition. Sit back, have a finely ground coffee and enjoy.
