So, I'll share all the art I've created since the last post here. We did a whole week on various forms of collage. This has not been one of my strong points, though I really enjoy looking and admiring others' wonderful collage efforts. These next two images were done by pasting a piece of a face from a magazine page on my paper and then finishing the face around it. Kind of a fun and novel idea.
These were drawn in charcoal around the piece of the face that I glued down. The next one was drawn with oil pastels over a page that was collaged with bits of text pages, music pages and other ephemera.
I've had several sets of oil pastels that I really haven't done much with. I really had fun doing this face with them. Enough so that I will use them again! The next one was a collage background but I used some soft pastels to draw the face on it.
This last one was really fun. the butterfly and flower in her hair were cut out and collaged also, as was her collar. In fact, the collar was from some hand painted paper I made using a stencil from Artistcellar - I love their stencils and all their supplies!
The next week we started using paints and mediums, and I'll make that a separate post. We started out doing some backgrounds and then I went on to use two of these for other portraits. Look for my next post!
