When was the last time you painted on something that wasn’t a blank piece of paper or canvas? Sometimes, painting on a printed surface can lead to interesting, unexpected results. This week in the studio, we’ll be doing tape resist paintings on magazine pages, inspired by the work of Arturo Herrera. Lay down strips of tape, paint on shapes of color, then peel off the tape after it’s dry to reveal the juxtaposed images underneath. What will your finished piece look like?
