A New Collage Experiment
Today I spent a couple of hours scanning various papers and textures at high resolution, in preparation for creating some large digital collages. I don’t know how it will go yet, but it should work.
I had a collage teacher who used to create a normal-size collage (say 8×10 inches) and then reproduce it very large on canvas. This involved scanning the original individual papers, enlarging those and printing them out, and actually collaging them onto the canvas. That process always intrigued me, but I never got around to trying it. It always impressed me as very exacting and time consuming.
I think my way of creating the collage digitally sounds easier.
This little collage is 5×5 inches. I don’t think I could reproduce it larger because of the subtle paint effects, but it would be fun to try.
