See you Saturday. The first one I showed you the other day. I haven't changed it at all although I determined I didn't like the green paper behind the photo. It seems too heavy. Not sure if I will remove it or not.
Paris I need a better title for this. Rose Window? suggestions welcome.
By the Sea. This one I have been struggling with. I used a purple crayon to color the border. Didn't like it and couldn't get the wax off. So used a blue/green crayon to cover it over. Now it looks dayglo. I ripped off a shell to the right of the photo leaving blank canvas showing, but will rewax it soon. Crayons are not really the best wax for colors. Or maybe this one is meant to be sort of kitsch. I have to admit that this blue is not one of my habitual colors. So maybe that is good.
Why? I used some of the tissue paper I had painted a few weeks ago as the background.
I also used less collage elements. Frankly, I like the simpler less packed collages the best.
Here is one of my habitual colors, purple.
Another collage done with pre-painted tissue paper as background. No name yet for this one but I think it is my favorite.
The last two canvases (not shown) I have been struggling with just in the layout stage. When I used the rose petals in "Paris" I discovered they became flattened and you can't even tell they are rose petals (to the left of the canvas) so I ditched the rose petal idea and left myself having to layout the last two (not shown) differently. I think I'm about ready to wax them up though, tomorrow or the next day.
Most of these are not finished. Work in Progress.
