Paint along with Gilead Step 4

Step 4: I tried and failed to photograph myself doing this so I’ll have to try to explain. Lay a board flat preferably on an old table. Dip a crappy old house painting brush into the sloppy paint and get it dripping wet. Then hold it above your board and bang it hard against a stick. It will splatter EVERYWHERE so do this outside and wear old clothes.
This will create random patterns of mess all over the board. Dip the brush in the next cup and do it some more until you like what you have. Don’t clean or dry the brush.

 let the paint dry just a little. You want the tiny splatters to be dry and the large drops to be starting to dry around the edges. Then you wipe the whole thing with a wet rag blending all the different colors of wet paint together into a grimy stain. Be sure to stain the whole surface. If you want to modify it some after it has dried go back with an opposing color and splatter some more. Dark over light, light over dark, blue over orange etc. Don’t clean or dry the rag.

Notice how much the background of this photo (the ground) resembles the foreground?  This is exactly what we're aiming for.
