Both parents made pottery. When it came time to glaze with designs, they used the Sgraffito technique. In Italian it means "to scratch". Most of their pottery was scratched with repeating designs to reveal the clay color underneath. This acrylic landscape was painted in the same mannerism, I sgraffito-ed the top layer to reveal the green underneath. The only difference is that I did the scratches in an expressionistic way to create randomness, less repetition. The last distinction that I want to point out are the drips of polyurethane. Its texture, in this case of matte versus shine, is a focus on the element of contrasting texture.
