Collaged Face-Misty homework

This was fun to do, if you don't mind little bits of paper flying everywhere. I transfered a face on to wood and started tearing pieces from magazine pages that I had torn out with the same values. I think it turned out pretty cool looking although I don't know if I would be of the artistic mindset to do alot of these. But I should just try one more though

I was just blogging around and happened upon your site and noticed I just saw this collage portrait in Misty's class. I am in her class to although I haven't done this collage yet. Yours is very inspiring.

Martha great job, Sandi

I like this. Doing a study like that is such a good way to study value and all the colors actually in a face. Cool.

love it!!! one thing i do when i create like this with little torn pieces of paper is to apply colorbox fluid chalk rubber stamp ink in chestnut brown to all the torn white edges. i use a little brush. it ends up giving the piece a vintage aged look. other times i leave the white edges for contrast and interest like you have!!!

Martha,

I really like this. I have been thinking about trying this ever since I found Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson online. I even bought one of her paper paintings.

WOW, this is TOTALLY cool! I wanna come play with you : )

Mary said...

Thanks Martha!
I guess with editing it would make it possible to film me painting, but I don't ever do one from start to finish in one sitting - and they usually turn out so totally different from where I begin. It would probably be very disjointed and hard to follow.

Thank you for all your encouragement my blogging friend!!

Well Martha I think it turned out just great! I think you should do more. You might try looking at my DVD which is an overview of collage and on my blog. I suggest varying your papers, looks like a lot of magazine paper in this, which is fine, but you might consider some hand painted rice papers, maps, art store papers.... a little variety in texture and surface offers a lot of depth. Vicki, thanks for the link!!
