140324 #Blacky #3

Blacky starts by stroking with impure white paint in the upper left corner. She then over-strokes the white application with green paint. She expands the green color field to the right and the middle of the paper, holding the brush in her right hand. She then changes her sitting position to the lower right corner of the wooden board and continues to expand the color field to the lower right corner, holding the brush in her left hand.

This manifestation shows that Blacky is reacting to an already applied color field by over-stroking it. It also shows her capability to expand the color application from a starting point towards the edges of the paper. At the same time, we see that her sitting position is in reference to the intended expansion and that she even changes the hand which uses to hold the brush by choosing to stroke with the hand that is closer to the paper.
