I'm no artist, but I found myself intrigued by these alternatives to brushes for creating paintings. Artsy has examples with photos and explanations for painting with splattering and dripping, pouring, pulling and scraping, body printing, air brushing, and digital printing. I can see me trying these on a small scale just for fun. Well, all but the naked body printing. That ain't gonna happen. Airbrushing, hmmm, I wonder what small substitute for an industrial tool I could use for that....
Here's one of their examples for each of the techniques:
Splattering and Dripping
|Jackson Pollock, 'Number 1, 1949'|
|Helen Frankenthaler, Cool Summer|
Pulling and Scraping
|Gerhard Richter, Bach (1)|
|Yves Klein, Anthropometry of the Blue Period (ANT 82)|
|Ed Ruscha, OH and NO|
|David Hockney, Yosemite II, October 16th 2011|
