We will create an acrylic on canvas painting of an ocean swell to celebrate Swell Artist Collective! Scrumbling and dry brush are a few interesting techniques. The process goes back quite a ways into the history of art and painting. One of the first people to use them was the famous artist Leonardo da Vinci. As the painting style of the times progressed into ever more realistic portrayals, the art began to be defined against the background less by dark lines and more by the shading and rendering of the form with light and shadow.
The process of scumbling begins with laying down a solid color on a surface. This can range from a single color, to a gradient of colors, or even an entire picture laid down in neutral colors. It is applied with a short bristled brush that is used to force the paint into the crevices of the chosen surface. Once this layer is completed, or if the medium is traditional, dry; the next layer can be applied. Lighter or darker colors are applied lightly to the surface, so that the paint only catches on the uppermost area of the chosen canvas. This gives an illusion of depth and complexity to the color that might not be achievable with other mediums. Materials included.
