Some paintings seem to take a long time to complete even years, this was one such evolution. Its good to step back  both physically and mentally from a painting for as long as it takes. Photographing the stages in a painting  is a good learning tool. Often we continue on too long because we are just enjoying the process of painting. The time to stop can be after a few deft strokes, sometimes luck, sometimes genius, I guess the art critics and history make that judgement.
Step 1 Washy Acrylic and Black Ink
Whether to paint over a painting and stsart again or to persist and use it as an experimental piece to try someting new... in this case I just kept on. Here are few shots of the journey
 Step 2 Addition of ripped paper mono print found in my stash

Step 3 More washy blue/purple. Transparent washy white painted over the print and graphics, more white lines for contrast and addition of more black graphics.
The final painting at the top has more opaque white lines added
