White on White Aspen Collage

The last bit of homework is done. Now I have to collect everything together in a great big pile and get ready to go back to class. It will probably take me all afternoon to finish that task. I’m always afraid that I will leave something I need at home. Thus I take the entire studio with me 🙂

This is a sketch of the aspen tree I have been studying in the spring. The leaves are just starting to grow bigger and it still has its little seed pod thingees. I am not sure what these are called. The assignment was a white on white collage.

Here’s what I came up with. Enlarge the photo to see it better. White on white is definitely subtle.

Here’s a bit closer view. I used a variety of Japanese rice papers to create the tree. I hope you have a great weekend and I will post again once I return from class.
