Developed impasto texture often reaching over an inch high

A pioneer in developing the Sculptural Paint style

Invented the Transparent glass look, but flexible, from jelly-like paint

 

Developed drying paint on a separate layer for shaping/sculpting, then to be placed back in the painting for sculptural effects. This idea was developed by Ruth for the fine art painting world.

 

Invented Template Designs to download, print out, seal & paint on, as more of learning fine art than cheesy coloring pages.

 

Developed Paintskins further, by being able to save paintings from the unintended palette, & further sculpted shapes.

 

Invented Squeeze-tracing over templates in teaching demos for others to learn how to add in sculptures to their own paintings. When Ruth needed her own seafan to add to a painting, She scanned a seafan she bought from a Dana Point shop, & squeezed paint over the shape from nature, then refined many other seafan shapes to work with painting.
