When a fabric is attached to the frame as a painting base, the application of a base colour begins. [...]
When the performer sees his or her finale as unsuccessful or of poor quality, there is the possibility of a new application of further layers of paint, a covering to store something new on it. By removing layers that art history classifies as irrelevant, it is possible - often seen with older works - by chance or presumption to uncover a layer that has been described as valuable.
In the case of works of established importance, the removal is waived for understandable reasons.
Through the X-ray of these works, the most famous example being Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa", an impression of "unsuccessful attempts" on the part of the artist in the lower layers could and can be conveyed.
If a further, even layer of paint is applied to a ("successful") layer of paint, the action of "overpainting" with an emphasis on "painting away" is no longer of a judgmental nature. The "better or worse at the top" or "worse or better at the bottom" and thus also the "improving" or "worsening" is omitted. What remains is the "new", the "renewed", which is not "better" or "newer" than the underlying, but happens to be a little younger. The action becomes a simple layer.
Over a long period of time, as the artist Christian Stock from Vienna practiced with his "Cube Paintings" (Blue Cube Painting, from October 1983 to March 1985), the action in connection with time [...] acquires a meditative, sensual character and thus a corresponding significance alongside the picture result.
