    Dab and Scrape

    I was testing the oil 100% load and different size and using the knife to scrape across the canvas. I am curious if it is possible to create a painting that is made only by dab and scraps that would actually resemble anything. Anybody want to try?

    I came across a neat effect by dragging color into black. Anyhow, the pic post is a start.

    hehe good one peter...this really worked well cause you used the effect to make the scene come alive rather than just the strokes

    An interesting palm tree. This suprised me. I wondered if you could get anything from dab and scraping. Thx.

    Neato, I thought this thread was dead. I also thought that getting a reasonable picture from dab and scrape was not possible.

    Eraser allowed, well, i suppose.

    Thx for posting. Neat.

    Speedy

    Here's another one..........you could develop this technique with some careful planning before starting the picture.................what a good idea you had!
