Oil Painting: Scraping Technique

With my good friend Jeannine, I briefly studied this type of oil painting under Dinah Cross James.  The technique involves layering on thick swaths of paint using a paint knife, one over the other, and then scraping through the multiple layers using various rubber and metal scraping tools.  The blending of the colors make for some intriguing natural patterns.  Jeannine has been practicing this style for awhile and is far better at it than I, and Dinah has done it for many years and makes a living from it.
