Collage prep

I’m getting ready for the collage unit in my Monday class.  This past Monday we worked on a “paper palette” to be used for the next couple of weeks.  I chose a triad of Quinacridone Gold, Thalo Turquoise, and Quinacridone Crimson and I’ve worked up these papers from that triad.  Most of these papers have at least 2 layers, some have 4 layers…  it all adds to the uniqueness of the end product.  Hopefully I’ll produce something fun with these next week.  Collage work forces the principles and elements of design out into the open better – particularly shape.  Making these papers is very addicting…  it’s hard to actually stop and paint!
