Paintober, Day 13 – Cloudbreak

Today’s postcard began with wavy, frantic pale blue strokes speckled with titanium white. I used a wide, thick brush to apply the acrylics, then added the crimson and viridian disruptions on the right-hand side with a much finer-pointed brush.

I tried a new technique: rather than wash the paint off near completion and reapply when necessary, I filled a tiny spray bottle and coated the postcard several times while painting, which resulted in a very different pattern of runoff and faded distress from what I’ve previously produced.
