For my finished piece, I chose to use several different techniques that I demonstrated in my mini technique paintings. I started the painting with washes of acrylic paint and water. I then built up layers of impasto paint. As I built my image, I also used the swipe technique with both a piece of cardboard and a palette knife. I also used some scraffito (scratch-through technique) in the background.
