Discovering Gold

Not all that glitters is gold, but gold is just what this painting needed! I recently finished an abstract that I was not satisfied with. It didn't have any 'wow factor', and I couldn't decide how to fix it. So I used the dud painting to experiment with a new technique! 



I laid blue painter's tape in a strategic pattern on top of my painting, then I applied metallic gold spray paint. After removing the tape, a negative space pattern surfaced on the composite. The results were beautiful and interesting! 







Perhaps I'll paint a piece specifically with this tape layering technique in mind!
