A new technique I am experimenting with. I’ve always been interested in collage but felt collage alone was not enough given that I really love drawing and painting. This started out on a recycled canvas that I gessoed first, then applied ripped magazine pages with acrylic medium. On top of that, I put a transparent glaze of yellow ochre for color variation. Next I painted the shoes on top using burnt umber, titanium white, cobalt, alizarin, cad red and cad yellow. I like the graphic feeling and abstract shapes formed by the collage elements combined with the realism on the shoes. More to come.
