This Painting Was Made without a Paintbrush

Not one.

Amy Shackleton applies wet paint to a canvas and then elevates and turns it so that the paint runs in the direction that she wants. After many carefully staged pourings over one or two weeks, she's made a complete, coherent image. Her technique seems to work particularly well for nighttime scenes. You can view more images and a time-lapse video of Shackleton at work at the link.

Ooops! Hit send too soon.

If you follow the link you'll see the paint is applied to a blank canvas. But then you find far to many people commenting on here who never bother to follow the link.

@bronsky even if it has been done over a photograph it's still clever. If you think it's so easy you go do one now and post us a link to the results.
