Day 6 - Mixed Media Explorations: Collage
At first these actions are intuitive, but I am also bearing in mind my theme of "boundaries". I use squares and circles and mesh patterns to represent enclosures and I use longer lines to represent divisions. Much of this disappears beneath further layers, but adds to the overall interactions of colours and edges. Towards the end of the piece, things slow down and my decision-making becomes more considered.
Here, I concluded the painting by adding some corrugated cardboard near the bottom and drawing the leaf-shapes, tying them together with a simple line.
