20x24, acrylic on panel
As many of you who follow my work know, I start with an acrylic under-painting on panel. Tonight at 7pm, at the Gateway Center for the Arts, I will be giving a demonstration of my collage technique for their Artist's League. I will be working with one of these under-paintings which I completed last night.
Some of my best advice I give in a workshop, is "do not fall in love with your under-painting!" because if you do, you will hesitate to collage over it. For this reason I try hard not to make a very detailed under-painting. I do like the way these came out, I was enjoying the process so much, I spent more time on them than usual. I am taking my own advice however, I am ready to paper over them!!
