Layers

At a recent workshop I conducted at the Logan Art Gallery, I was trying to encourage some of the participants, to let go of each layer of their work and enjoy the development of their paintings, through the 'what if' process.

What if I painted over this with another glaze? What if I added another layer of printing? What if I added another stencil? What if I splattered all over it? What if i made patterns over the top?
I wish I had this video then, to show them how enjoyable the process is . . .

don't you just love their ability, to paint over the pre-existing layer and allow the next one to develop, prior to loosing it again. . . . .

Such freedom of expression.

Video removed . . . .?
