In my recent paintings, I’ve started incorporating rather unusual techniques. Cotton buds, paper towel, fingernails, whatever gets the job done. I take this as a good sign, as it means I’m focusing more on the outcome rather than how I’m going to get there.
I’ll run through some of these techniques in this post, using my recent painting below and some others to illustrate my points. Keep in mind this is not an all-encompassing list and I encourage you to come up with your own unusual techniques. Be open-minded and creative. Don’t be confined by convention.
Anyway, let’s get into it.
