I have some round shapes and green shapes taped on to the canvas in order to do color, size and images checks before I commit to the next step. This is also one of those cases where the name is coming before the finished piece. I am thinking either holy water or soul searching for a title.
On the wall is more yet unfinished work. A commission came in so everything else is left for another day.
The pulled paper technique in Surface Treatment Workshop is really just a step to your finished piece not your finished piece as most of the techniques are. It is the layering of images and surface techniques that make a piece interesting.
The top example is what was done with the pulled paper/wet gel transfer technique and the second is what it could become when it is pushed further with drawings, collage and paint. I personally love that in and out of focus thing that is happening.
