“Trial and Error”
Red Ribbon Award
Trial and Error is an abstract painting on 11" x 14" canvas.
Watercolor and acrylic paints were used in its creation. Vinegar and
rubbing alcohol were drizzled on top to create a chemical reaction in
the paint, representing the research done with bovine blood. The maroon
area was covered in vinegar for a crackling, thinning effect. Rubbing
alcohol was dripped onto the white paint, also for a thinning reaction.
Salt was sprinkled onto blue and red areas. Trial and Error was finished
with a Gloss-Lustre top coat.
