Ruining Rothko

After my experience ruining squares, I wondered if images of color field paintings could be ruined with triangles even with no sharply defined structure. So I tried the same thing with some images of paintings by Mark Rothko.

Here are the three I picked: No. 61 (Rust and Blue), 1953. White Over Red, 1957. And No. 46 (Black, Ochre, Red Over Red), 1957.
