More color collages

Standard

Here are three collages for a lesson in Jane Davies' color online class. The first is the monochrome:

I used green blue and blue in this, as well as black and white, and the partly hidden letters are blue neutralized with orange. Mostly paint with a bit of cut paper and some doodling with watercolor crayon.

Here's an analogous piece:

This started with a green blue background and then a green and yellow green island appeared. All paint. I think I'll add some even lighter tints to the 'island' although this isn't as dark in real life as it appears.

And here's a complementary collage. I had a hard time finishing this one. The pinkish circles were bright red violet to start but that seemed too intense (even for me) so I knocked them back and now…they need something. Texture? Fine detail? So this is probably NOT finished!

  1. Love what you’re doing with the blues. I particularly like the middle one, which looks like an aurora borealis in a beautiful north-country landscape. Interesting lines and effects in that one. I want to see the color of bing cherries in the bottom piece . . . 🙂
