    Background WIP

    I haven't decided what I'm going to do with this yet. Some linework for sure, maybe an ink and wash sketch, then play with blend modes. It should be something interesting.

    I think You could pin on it images just as You cut them around from newspaper and magazines (vintage ones too) and assemble an harmonic composition where that composition would emerge anyway chromatically, tonally and texturally (even giving a slight effect of rolled paper in some points and a little shading in case).
    I would give You a vague hint with the herebelow artpieces as examples; they are by Zaelia Bishop, an artist here in Rome.

    Lovely, Caesar. Very much the sort of thing I have in mind.

    My opinion is that this project as it is, as such, already is a great work of art.

    Opino que esta obra así como está, tal cual, ya es una excelente obra de arte.

    I think it works already. Agree with Damaso. It could stand alone now as a minimalist art piece.

    Fortunately, ArtRage permits me to have it both ways. Despite the time I spent using the dry rollers to both lay down and pick up color, I never thought of it standing on its own. Looking at it again, I am quite pleased, but I still think it can work as a foundation. I just have to be careful not to over do it.
