My newest mixed media. This piece is primarily collage but has elements of acrylic, acrylic marker and oil paint...
My collage papers are all hand printed mono prints, died tissue, paper towels and even toilet paper. Yes toilet paper. This piece is from a photo by my talented brother who lives in Toronto.
This collage is a compilation of several elements from other recent work. Using my computer I designed the painting using photo editing and design tools. From there it was back to the gluing board and the result was fairly predictable while being creatively interesting as well.
Another "purist"collage. When working this way I pride myself on achieving the entire piece strictly in collage. No paint is applied to the piece at all. That would make it mixed media instead. I do mixed media work as well but I decide to do that at the onset.
I found this sleepy little watercolour when cleaning out my studio. I didn't hate it enough to dispose of it but I didn't love it either. After alluring it with my own hand pulled mono print collage papers I am much happier.
Just a thought...
