Crow Collage

Another Collage, I have over the years picked up I guess most people would call these items junk, I call them little treasures. I have several drawers full of them and in the past did make some assemblages using them. ( see post from August 19th ) I am hoping to incorporate more of these little odds and ends into my collage work. For this collage I painted the crows and used the street photo I had taken in downtown Portland and did some manipulation on the computer to render the image in black and white. All the colored areas were taken from magazines. Plus the addition of my found objects.

Bee Collage (SOLD)


I have started the new year with a goal to do more collages this year. Since I have been working on a number of bird pieces I thought I would attempt to do a series of paintings and collages called the Birds and the Bees Series. The bee and the flower in the collage were done using Derwent Intense Colored Pencils. I bought a small set to experiment with and found them to be fun to play around with. After sketching with them you can go over them with a wet brush to get different effects. The rest of the collage was done with painted rice papers and assorted painted colored papers and colors ripped from magazine.
