5x11 inches, paper collage
I finally finished the paper collage I did for the Inspiration All Around Us challenge. As I mentioned in my last post, my idea was to create a paper collage with a watercolor under painting in complimentary colors, and to let those colors show through. In general, I like the results, and will try more collages with this technique. I like my color choices, though the yellow table cloth is close to the peach in value and hue. I also like the bits of background color peeking though, and the textures in the vintage papers and maps I ripped up and cut to create the composition. I tried to have some papers with no printing, so it wasn't too busy, and I think that worked too. The peach on the left is my least favorite, perhaps because I tried to do too much shading. Still, it was a good experience, and I am satisfied with how it turned out.
