Tracing my raven drawing......then choose from the gessoed watercolor paper backgrounds I made last week.
I like the one with orange, red and green.
Apply the tissue raven to the background, add more collage with magazine paper, get a little tired of tearing magazine "feathers". I cut a wing out of batik fabric and used black and green acrylics to paint the raven....drying now. We'll see how this evolves! [shadow of my arm in the photo....I kind of like that!]
Another collage in progress on cloth background....hence the wrinkles...

We gessoed watercolor paper and canvas (which had been stitched together). Then we played with acrylic paints to make backgrounds.
I like all mine, but this little indigo has a Japanese feel, wabi sabi. I really like it!
I'll be back to show how these collages develope as the class progresses!
