State Photos

I have done several pieces recently that have gone through a number of stages.  This particular painting has gone through a lot.
STATE !. Initial state, underpainting and transferred Chinese newspapers

STATE 2. Transferred layers of acrylic skin.

STATE 3.  Started integrating into forms.  Overlaid acrylic transfer of black patterns.

STATE 4. Started intensifying some of the colors.  Sand and repaint areas.

STATE 5. Added some black on white stripes, increasing the dimensionality of the central forms.  Adding black in some of the negative space.

STATE 6.  Final state.


  1. Hi Ed--I love the layers that allow an enjoyment of your process from the first Chinese paper layer, through the transfers and to the final marks and splatters.
