New piece for Growth Series
I am trying some new techniques in this series. I began by collaging different paper to get texture, then l painted the canvas yellow followed by blue. After that I used sandpaper to expose the yellow and some of the collaged paper. I wanted to conceptually "grow" the colors. I have been enjoying sketching plants so instead of painting flowers I drew them and collaged them into the piece.
I am planning on expanding the idea of growth into areas outside of plants. I now have 4 new pieces in the series.
