Her method is to create the background of the painting by wetting the paper and pouring color over it. The way the color takes on the paper can be manipulated by tilting and moving the paper while the paint is wet. She also uses masking fluid to keep whatever she wants to either stay white or light. Check out her work here.
So, this is the one piece that I came out with and the glass is shown as it appeared when I peeled off the masking fluid. I could re mask and paint over some of the white but for now I like this as is. I'm pleased with the colors and even like the effect of the space where peeling off the masking tape separating the painting from the drips of paint from the pour.
I'm stoking my inner abstract artist ;)
