Working more abstractly has led me to try various ways of applying paint. Sometimes I use brushes in a traditional way for a smooth surface. At other times I apply paint with palette knife or brush then spray it with water. To develop texture I often use molding, fiber or crackle pastes, skins,or other mediums and scrape with tools. Experimenting often leads to interesting, less predictable outcomes.
