Here are a couple of works which both contain a text-like scrawl, similar to that of Cy Twombly. This was for an assignment which involved incorporating text into a painting.
I used a grattage (wipe back) technique for both works; One with a black under painting in acrylic, the other with a multicoloured under painting. These works were then painted over with a coat of oil paint. Whilst the oil paint was still wet, I used a painting knife to scratch into the paint, which reveals the colours of the under painting.
