Manipulation of Process Continuum
This group includes artifacts that display the process of applying paint to the painting surface. The artist may brush the paint on, drip or spill it, throw it, knife it, sponge it, finger it, roll it, blow it or spit it. It doesn’t matter which. When the process is left to show in any degree, then the painting belongs on this continuum.
Typical clusters or spikes in the ascending trend line include Virtual Realism, Interpretive Realism, Impressionism, drip paintings, and any other method that may fit the category.
