Leslie took my workshop in Jacksonville, FL. The turtle piece was her class project. She used a lot of magazine papers on it and I think it came out great. I love the way she nestled the stamps in the background underneath the turtle. The color balance really helps to bring the coral and underwater plants forward and the turtle to the background. The long horizontal strips of blue really give a feel for the water. Great job!
The second image is also from Leslie, a collaborative piece that started with the painting of the people by her teacher, then she took it and added the paper! She encouraged me to give this as an example of the difference between copying, emulating, etc. and simply using a technique to go your own way.
