I used matte medium to adhere pieces of newspaper to the substrate in the first step. Then I brayered a layer of gesso over the substrate.
In step 2, I added paint using rainbow colors. As you can see texture is now coming through from step 1.
Since I was honoring four great 20th century artists I wanted to give a flavor of their work in my piece. I create gel skins transfers using gloss gel medium.
In step 5 the rubbing off of the paper fibers begins.
I added a glaze over the gessoed layer and then added the decapitated bodies of Rauschenberg, Johns, Haring, and Warhol.
