I chose a face from a magazine.

image

I used gesso, collage and paint to prepare a background. I wiped off the paint here and there to let some paper show through. At this stage I’m feeling like it is pretty ugly, but I will keep pushing forward.

image

Tore my face out of the magazine and stuck it down onto the page.

image

Added a hat, a dress and some arms. Drew some 4 leaf clovers around some of the collage elements.

Added some greener green!

Painting over the face and adding some burnt orange hair.

Now for the words and some detail work with a yellow Sharpie paint pen…

  1. I think this is brilliant and I really enjoyed that you shared your process as I am new to mixed media art so seeing the way you layered up each stage was educational to me. Thanks!
