A Village in Scandinavia
This is perhaps, my favorite of the projects involving the collaging of old paintings. The painting is 7 1/2 " x 11" and is painted on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper. As in the previous collaged paintings, I applied dark brown acrylic ink with a nib pen on top of the collaged tissue paper. I guess I like this one best because I like these colors so well. I have one more old painting that I collaged with the tissue and I am handling the ink line with a much different approach - I will post it when it is finished...I have mixed emotions about the final one.
