I thought I would share the process of collaging one of my latest pieces. Here is the wood canvas I painted with a base coat of black with quinacridom nickel azo gold and yellow ochre scrubbed on with a foam brush in circular motions.
Here I added the collage pieces and some more paint.
Here is the final piece. I added white gel pen, more collage and part of a metal frame nailed to the top of the canvas. It is hard to show, but the trim juts out from the canvas, it is not nailed flat.
