Scumbling technique for mist


This 40×50 cm acrylic on canvas is the demo painting I worked on at last weekend’s Adult Education workshop. It was painted using the primary colours and white (no black) using brushes and palette knife. The main technique for creating the transparency of the thin veil of mist and the soft but volumous clouds was dry brush scumbling. No wonder I wear my brushes out!

The finished work, titled “Ephemeral Veil”, features Mt Roland and is on display at the Tasmanian Regional Arts Kentish,Acrylic on canvas Working Art Space and Gallery at Albert St Sheffield for July, August.

SOLD. going to live in NSW.
