There were more than I remembered or wanted to think about. I have waaaay too many half started, partially done, hopelessly drifting collages going at once. All of these repurposed paintings from sales and resale shops are really starting to pile up. I need to commit and finish some!
I dragged all NINE (sheesh) of them out to the dining room for photos and initial evaluation(s).
|The pile of smaller ones.|
|The three bigger ones|
|For the purposes of this blog entry, I will call this one Collage 1.|
|Collage 1 has two main characters right now...this rabbity guy...|
|...and this goaty guy.|
|For this blog entry, this is Collage 2...it has three main characters.|
|...this guy in the middle...|
|...and this little guy on the end who is sort of hard to make out...his arms are outstretched and his nose is hidden by his arm.|
|For this blog entry, this is Collage 3.|
|For this blog entry, this is Collage 4.|
|For this blog entry, this is Collage 5...it was probably the second canvas I started to repurpose...it has a lot of characters, but here are the main ones...not sure how many will survive to the end.|
|This cat guy carrying a patchwork dog guy.|
|This blue horned guy.|
|This long-legged canine-ish sort of guy.|
|This is my favorite character in this collage...he is hard to see but he is sort of like a bear with his eyes closed.|
|For this blog entry, this is Collage 6,|
|These are the three latest ones...Collage 7.|
|I stacked them up and grabbed the smallest one.|
So I pulled out the smallest collage and added more solid black outlines and used blending chalks to add a bit of defining color.
|The edges of this one are continuations of the surface...not sure if I will frame it or not.|
|The pens and blending chalks.|
|How Collage 4 ended up...more color, a little more definition...it might be done now...maybe.|
And then I just grabbed one of the next sized ones...and ended up with the walking guy...who had no real head...I finally added the basic outline. It was getting late and I was losing any sort of inspiration.
|Oh brother...this guy started off like a bear but now I don't know what he is...there is a long way to go on this one.|
Eeek...I need to finish this up...it's almost midnight!
