24x30" / 7/8" acrylic pour abstract created in the summer of 2020. This pour explores multi-layering. It began by using masking tape to bisect the canvas horizontally into series of 1.5" rows. Working from the top down, I painted every other row with dioxazine purple. Once the canvas dried, I removed the tape and then used masking tap to bisect the canvas vertically into a series of 1.5" columns. Working from left to right, I painted every other column using quinacridone red. Once the canvas dried, I removed the tape. I then used masking tape to bisect the canvas diagonally into 3 sections. For the second layer, I performed an acrylic pour using the same palette: dioxazine purple, titanium white, and quinacridone red. Once the painting dried, I carefully removed the masking tape breaking the pour layer and completely exposing the painted base layer. The end result is complicated piece, which draws the user in from a distance and up close.
