Scrap painting

branch lisa fulmer mixed media

This is a small 8x10" piece I made this past week for a gallery show. It started as a "scrap painting," aka leftover paint on the brushes and palette from another project that I'm too miserly to waste. I add excess paint randomly to a canvas or paper board, then I smudge and swipe bits of additional colors to create a crazy background. I paint a negative design in black on top - paint markers help with smooth lines. Really fun and unpredictable!
