“Painting” with only paper can be a fun change of pace, and is a good exercise in really having to pay attention to color values. I often like to throw in a little extra challenge and fun by adding images here and there for the viewer to discover. In this collage, “Tea Time Discovery”, there are a dozen images hidden in the piece… I Spy style! Can you find them?
If you would like to purchase this piece, find it in my etsy shop here!
If you would like to make your own paper painting, I am holding a workshop this week at Tessera Fine Art Gallery, and I would love to see you there!
Participants will make their own 8 x 10 collage on a stretched canvas. I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!
I have been enjoying the challenge lately of “painting” with paper. It is trickier than it might seem to use ONLY paper for all the shading, details, etc. I am so tempted to grab a paint brush… especially for little things like the speck of white in her eyes. It is also really difficult to find good skin tones in my paper stash. Not much junk mail comes in flesh colors I guess!
