Blacky starts with a blue color application and a black one right beside it. She then expands the black color field over the blue one. Later on, she applies blue paint right under the black color application and expands the blue color field over the black one. In the end, she takes red paint and strokes it onto the overlapping area of the blue and black color field.

This manifestation shows that Blacky is alternating the way she attaches the color applications by setting them right beside each other and by over stroking them again. It also shows that she perceives the overlapping area as a “special” area by applying the red paint right in between the existing color fields at the end.
