I have created quite a few collages and extended prints. Now I need to put them into a notebook for presentation. I thought I had a 9″ x 9″ notebook that was new but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I searched and searched. I thought I might have lost my mind. But no, I put it with a pile of other notebooks but there are so many piles of stuff in my studio room that it took a while to remember which pile it was in. But thank goodness, I had one. Yay! So today I spent most of the day painting background pages. I had a bunch already painted but the holes are off and don’t fit into the same size notebook. That really irritates me but I don’t like the unevenness that it creates. So I figured out what colors I needed and then painted pages. Hopefully, the pages will work with the collages. It’s harder to paint the exact color that you need. It’s easier to choose from a selection of already painted papers.
Here’s some of the ones that I painted today. There are a bunch more but the photo was blurry. I paint both sides of the paper so it takes a while for these to dry.
Here’s one of my collages. What do you think? Do you like the purple background or the yellow and orange background? I usually try out 3-4 different color backgrounds for each collage before I choose.
And last but not least, here is the Picasso head from last week. I decided to stick with monochromatic so did different values of blue. I’m sure that the orange or multi color would have been more exciting. I still might add some more color.
Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend.
