 Scratched-in Edges  

• Where subjects/shapes meet one another, a line is scratched into the painting in order to define the edge

Scratched-in edges introduce a distinct abstract element that removes representational pieces from naturalistic depiction. The quality of the scratched-in line can also be an expressive element as it clearly reveals the steadiness of the artist’s hand.
