dragging

   Applying relatively dry oil paints lightly over a surface, creating an area of broken color — the new color having attached to the high spots but not to the low, so that irregular portions of the undercolor remain exposed. Also known as scruffing. Also see cissing, dry brush painting, and overpainting.
