Experiment for material painting. I made a simple example for applying some technics to one of the first

abstract try-outs at the senior painting club.

They had fun and did discover,( as I did too), the different outcomes of the " raking across the canvas" system,

Each of them did discover a complete different result.

Sorry Elisabeth! I wrote my comments half in English and half in Spanish! What I meant is that  I love the shapes, the forms, the colors! I like this style a lot!
