'Mother and child', collage and paint, A4 card.
Collage on Sunday.
Yesterday, I thought I'd do a collage as a warm-up exercise for 15 mins, but got engrossed and spent all morning doing it.
I used a piece of watercolour paper (6 by 8 ins.), which had some brusho on it...spread PVA over it and glued down some random black and white patterned papers...added some red acrylic paint, then swiped away some of the paint in shapes.
The shapes looked rather like 2 figures so I added white paint to the figures and more collage papers and paint on the background. Next, some pen lines to give the faces features. I mounted the 6 by 8 ins piece on A4 card added, collaged papers around the edge for a border, painted the border red, and it was done.
It was enjoyable to do as there was no plan...a bit of free-wheeling always feels good to me.
Susie is attempting to get my attention by lying in front of the computer, giving me a paw-shake.
Have a great day!
