OK, technically this is not a real painting, nor is it a virtual painting but rather a virtual composite of a 1 cm square image of a splat of ink made on a card originally done as a test for an experimental film I did a few years ago. Each frame on this 16mm film had a splat similar to this but of course different which created an interesting effect when projected. The splat was made by drawing back a rubber band loaded with india ink, then released which subsequently hit the surface and releasing the ink. I came across this test image recently then enlarged the heck out of it then played with it a little in photoshop. The frame was constructed in Adobe Illustrator.
