I am beginning to like working with layers. It is a bit of a cop out in terms of design, since one never knows with certainty what the next tier will add or subtract from another. Certainly working with a computer photo editor allows the artist to create layers that can be superimposed without affecting the layer below (which is what happens with painting). The possibility of ruination is opposed by the possibility of genius. Hopefully, with experience, the artist will minimize the chances of ruining the piece.
I began with washes of Prussian blue and quinacridone burnt orange. I love that combination. I smeared on some latex resist and applied carmine red. After removing the resist, I splashed some sepia and red inks, which I spread with a stream of compressed air.
Each layer is very distinct from the previous one.
