Detailed Paintings Made Entirely Without Paintbrushes

Toronto-based artist Amy Shackleton creates detailed paintings, combining urban and natural landscapes, without any paintbrushes at all. Instead, she allows the paint to drip naturally — sometimes guiding it with a string, or by changing the direction of her canvas. And these aren’t the “drips” your art school professors always told you were cliché. You can check out her entire process sped up 800x (it took her about 30 hours) to see how she finished her newest work, Terraced City.
