Paintover Collage

Ah! Made it through another LifeBook class.  I’m so behind already. Luckily, a friend emailed me this morning and said “Make sure you get in the studio today!” Thank you. I did!

Today’s class was a paintover collage – make a background collage, and paint over it. (yeah, I know…  that probably didn’t need an explanation.) I did something like this before with a portrait. I think I’ll keep doing it for practice though, because I think it helps me to keep facial features proportionate.

This was my beginning paper collage:

After I got the basic papers done, I began adding layers of watercolor and acrylic paints, along with a bit of drawing.

From there, I went more into the details and this was my final piece:

I’m not sure if I’ll add any more to it at the moment. I will probably leave it as is and start a new one when I get the urge to make something look different.
