"Acorn" working title
12x12 collage on 1 3/4" cradled panel
In my demo on Friday I began a new piece that I'm calling "Acorn" for now. My intent was to show how to begin a collage using my methods. The background was painted with acrylics. I made two stamps of oak leaves for background design, and stamped the upper left with a different stamp. The idea is to bring texture and pattern into the piece with different materials and methods to add to the over all interest. I added torn paper for the very reason I just addressed and then my stream (of course). Note how I am bringing in the reddish color here and there which is part of the focus for my whole piece. NOTE THE PICTURE...The actual subject matter will be most likely be painted in oil, but I reserve the right to change my mind and paint it in acrylics if the mood strikes me. My decision will be based on how I want the whole to look...more painterly, or blocks of color that is easy in acrylic. NOTE how I try to stay close to where the darks and contrasts are in the photo. It turned out nicely so I want to duplicate the values in some important places! Stay tuned for the finished piece!
