a main character emerges from the layers of paper
Tonight I have been studying the repurposed watercolor portrait that I covered with papers and matte medium. Here is the very wet collage in a photo from last night.
Here is the dry(er) collage tonight -- with images starting to come to the surface.
This is the strongest creature so far and I really like how she is looking. I love her stance and position on the collage.
I can see a few other faint images in the background and to the left of her. I am not sure what she is about yet or who else will join her...but I am looking forward to finding out.
And here is an update on the hatchling creature -- Leann was right...he does look kind of neat with the pink and green paper. I might have to rethink how I approach finishing him. The paper has made his surface nice and smooth -- it feels really good to touch.
