I decided to experiment a bit with this one. I used isopropyl alcohol to dissolve droplets of paint on the canvas; I started by using the alcohol drops just on the rocks, then expanded them to the rest of the canvas.

  1. You achieved a really interesting surface Kristin. I love the colours too.

  2. Thanks, ivana! Using the palette knife to create textured backgrounds has really helped me to be more spontaneous with my paintings.

    I visited your web site - your work is exquisite!
