Splatter Paint!

"The Speckled Dish" 
10 x 10 inches, oil on canvas

To achieve the speckled effect on this little ceramic dish, I first modeled the form, including the highlights, then I loaded up my brush with runny paint, hauled off and flicked it at the canvas. You can see how it looked at that point here.

Of course, I had to take care of all that before painting anything else, going against my usual method of bringing the whole painting together at once, never finishing any one area before moving on.

Love the effect! There may be some speckled bovines in the future!
