This painting will be a abstract seascape when complete. I will be using overbeaten abaca, cotton rag pulp, pure pigments, plastic spoons, old credit cards, screening, and yogurt cups to make this painting. The first stage of the painting is shown here. I have poured cotton pulp onto screening and allowed it to dry. The screening hold the pulp and prevents it from warping. I then grid the surface so that I know where each color of the original photo needs to be placed. I am ready to add colors into the gridded areas at this stage. Here we go!
