10×7.5″ acrylic on matboard

This began with a scrape of a variety of colors. After drying, I scraped a transparent acra blue violet over it, then cutting in lines with a soft scraping tool while the paint was still wet. I don’t think it needs the cut-in lines now, but thought it was a good idea at the time.

Even though acra blue violet is transparent, it is also dark and can cover up in the right thickness. I like how the colors pop through here and there, and those places where there wasn’t quite enough paint to cover over.
