A vivid and highly textured abstract landscape was created in acrylic using action painting and extrusion of acrylic paint and media through various cake decorating nozzles (using a pastry bag). Once all of the textural details were in place, the scene was whitewahsed with a translucent white glaze. The whitewash was rubbed when almost dry to remove some of the white and reveal the colors. Rubbing the white off the color creates a grungy rough effect, which is a nice contrast to the more elegant lines and swirling patterns in the landscape. The subject is a loose depiction of foothills and sky.
