|Roxana shows the start of a multi-layer painting.
Each area of the painting has different color, textures, shapes, and sizes.
Step 01: White space in between the small areas was created by applying tape onto the paper, creating an open gridwork.
Step 02: Each open area inside the gridwork was painted. Paint was allowed to dry.
Step 03: All of the tape was removed, then reused to create a new gridwork right on top of the dried artwork.
Step 03: Within the new open gridwork, she painted new areas, overlapping colors and forms and textures on the first layer.
|Example of taped gridwork and painted areas.|
|Students remove tape and then create a new gridwork.|
|Example of finished work by a student.
Note overlapping colors, variety of textures and shapes.
Layers of colors effectively create new color blends.
