Layering and texturizing paint layers

The process of dripping, splattering, or any other method of adding volume and shapes to paintings is a rich, organic look that appeals. By building your shapes or marks, then painting or rubbing, or putting on paint over those textural accents instantly creates a beautiful effect that draws the eye. Below is just completed “Serengeti”
(36 x 48). It took five layers of building with modeling paste and gel mediums, each drying between applications. Five more layers of paint followed, manipulated by dripping, braying and using a brush. It’s difficult to see the depth of the texture, but if you’re local, come by and see it in person.
