The Apple of My Eye


Considering this piece nearly ended up in the bin

 I am really pleased how it turned out.

Normally I don't tape my paper down when I work but this results in

paint marks getting on the back which doesn't look very professional

 if you want to sell it unframed. So this time I taped down

with low tack masking tape with the idea of trimming it.

However I rather like the white border but even though I de- tacked the tape

further by sticking it to my t-shirt first it  still managed to rip

 the surface of the paper in parts.

If anyone can recommend a good tape for this purpose I would be grateful to

hear your thoughts.
