The Next Chapter…

Last week I showed you my first layers of two collages I started in the online class I’m taking from Anne Marie Grgich: A First Layer

I have made some progress during the last week.  It feels like I have added the next chapter in my collage stories.

I turned this canvas upside down and discovered the close-up of a face, do you see it?

I added some facial features and details, in addition to acrylic paint that I tinted with clear tar gel (which is like a super thick gel medium):

I think adding the yellow and turquoise paint helps bring more cohesion.

And in my second collage, I decided to create a mermaid.  I added more collage images in layers and paint… The progress is more subtle in the photo on the right:

I’m enjoying the process and learning new techniques as I progress.  These collages are like a puzzle or mystery to solve!

I hope you are enjoying the journey with me…

Cheers! 🙂

  2. So much detail. Are these finished or are there more steps? You’re right about the puzzle. You can get lost in these pieces.

  6. These are cool, although I find them confusing, almost like there’s too much to look at?? But I know nothing about this technique…it definitely looks like you’re having fearless fun!
