Paint it Red..........

This is a photo of yet another abstract painting which I painted.

Title: Paint it Red
Medium: Mixed media
Size: 8 X10

This painting was done using Scrafito technique. Scrafito, meaning "to scratch" is used for many techniques in various mediums including jewelry and ceramics as well as painting.Here a wet top layer of paint was scratched to reveal the colors underneath. It is best to use two colors that are very different from each other. For instance, the bottom layer might be a bright color, while the top is a muted or dark color. Or the bottom layer is multicolored, while the top layer is one solid color. ( This is how I did this painting). To scratch the paint I used a palette knife.
