Painting process posts by Ellen McCormick Martens
The flecks of color in this piece come from laying down one color, then covering it with a contrasting color, letting that layer dry very briefly, and spraying it with water and blotting it with a paper towel. It is simpler than using alcohol, or flicking paint from a toothbrush. It produces, layer by layer, a more varied set of little spots, which are more like a pavement block in a sidewalk.
