Scumble #16 - art technique edition

"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.  

Highlighting recent posts I found interesting, provocative, or otherwise caught my eye from the Science Artists Feed, and other sources. This week, I've also added a number of interesting blog posts highlighting various art techniques.  A lot of these aren't on the Science Artists Feed and they're well worth sharing.

Time to slow cold-brew yourself a cup of toddy, put your feet up and enjoy the science-art and art techniques!
