FINAL STAGE: Many things have happened between the middle and final stages, but I often forget to grab my camera phone to capture a "stage" shot. Although I am trying to get better at this (and if I do, I will post more revelations, most of them pretty ugly, on this blog!), this is all I have. I focused on creating some serious darks, less textured transparency in the quinacridone Nickel Azo Orange and limey green areas to contrast with the opaque seafoam green, some nice saturation to play off the duller grays, and a pinch of clip art to contrast with all the abstraction. Although this is a very small painting (just 6x6in), scaling up will require the same process, with bigger tools, of course. Jagged Edge, 6x6", 2015.
