On March 3, when I introduced my 4 newly released Abstract Composition Backbones Masks s864, s865, s866 and s867, I mentioned the option of cutting all four from their 6" x 6" frames to make it easier for me to use them in combination, for developing artworks larger than 6" x 6" or even 9" x 12".
Today's post goes step-by-step through yet another way to "think big."
Like earlier art-making explorations, today's began with black watercolor paper. At this point in my series of art-making adventures, my masks already bore stains from other projects; this was an advantage, since it made them stand out on the black background. I used green masking tape to secure three of the masks in a top-to-bottom formation. As you can see in the photo below today's featured masks are Mask 2 s85 (far left) and Mask 3 s866 (far right) and Mask 4 s867 (center.)
|Above: Today's project calls for metallic Woody watercolor pencils. The pencil shown here is metallic gold. Notice that I've made a "trail of gold" that extends from the left side to the right and from the top to the bottom.|
Abstract Composition Backbones Masks 1, 2, 3 and 4 look like this, when still enclosed in their original 6" x 6" borders--
