I've noticed over the past 6 months that for much of the time I am no longer satisfied with just a fairly faithful rendition of a pic...I need to add more...something different...some punch, and most of the time just tweaking values doesn't do it for me. This is about complete for what was in the photo save another boat house a bit further into the water...but I feel the pull of collage! Now this is done on a 10x16" stretched canvas so I must be careful. I have done collage on canvas and it works fine, but if the papers were too heavy it might not work as well...So, I'm thinking add some punch with sunlight on the foliage...BUT perhaps I can add a tree (of the palm persuasion) with collage...So, just sharing this process with you...of course any suggestions are always welcome (of course the final decision is up to the artist...tee hee).
As frustrating as this is for me, it is a bit exciting as well. For months I have felt a subtle change coming over me...an evolution if you will. I have to admit my tree collages give me the biggest spark, but I DO believe I am moving in a direction...I'm fascinated to see where it will take me.
