New Collage in Muted Colors
This one is a change of pace from the more colorful collages that I posted over the past two weeks. It feels right for now, reflecting the more subtle colors of the season. The leaves are still beautiful and bright, but too soon the trees will show their bare branches, a beauty in their own right.
The papers used in this collage are painted magazine pages. My new favorite art material. I love the way the original colors peek through my own paint colors and the original patterns mingle with the patterns of the brush strokes and swirls of paint. If you haven’t tried this yet, I highly recommend that you experiment a little. There are always plenty of nice surprises.
