Today's post follows an artwork of mine as it goes thru its stages toward resolution.
|Above: My paint-stained Abstract Composition Backbones Mask 1 s864, now cut free from its original 6" x 6" frame, is placed on a new substrate and from it extends an ultra-narrow artist's masking tape. Under the roll of tape lies a small sponge-top paint applicator that's just been used to add pale pink acrylic paint all along the area around the tape.|
Below: So the starting print can be seen, the tape has been removed and the mask has been slightly moved.
Below: As I continue repeating the same type of paint additions, I rotate the substrate and eventually bring in another paint-stained mask, Abstract Composition Backbones Mask 3 s866. It too has been cut from its original 6" x 6" frame:
Below: Now the substrate looks like this:

Below: Now I bring out Abstract Composition Backbone Mask 4 s867, which has been further customized -- not only removed from its original frame but also cut into two unequal halves....
And I change from pink acrylic paint to blue --
Below: I start to add a darker pink and darker blue, still using the small sponge-tipped applicator thru my masks....
The photo above shows the finished piece. By the time I've reached this point, I've used all four of the masks.
Abstract Composition Backbones Masks 1, 2, 3 and 4 look like this --
