365 Days of Art – Painting Without Brushes


…..Days 20 and 21

In Carla Sonheim’s on-line class we were instructed to create a still life using a scraping technique using an old credit card. Any left over paint on the card could be scraped off onto another piece of paper that could be used in future projects.

I loved this process. My brush pens didn’t give me the desired effect that Carla was looking for so I used the credit card to make all my marks. Jill Kuhn also used bubble wrap to stamp on some colour and I really liked that so I tried that as well. The flowers go off the page in this piece so the vase and the pear are the focal points of this still life. I know that I’m going to experiment with this technique some more. It’s very addictive. I even really like the art paper I created from the left over paint.

  1. I LOVE this, Carol! I like the jaggedy quality to the flowers combined with the bubbles which give an overall softening of the scene … but mostly my eye is attracted to the blue and yellow in the vase which seems to anchor the image.
    The more I look at it, the more I like it 💕
    I hope you’ll experiment more with this technique.
