Lake Ontario, February 8
5.75" x 7.25", acrylic collage on paper.
Made as a demonstration piece for some AP students. I took my lunch hour to drive along the lake, made a very brief pencil diagram of this composition, and completed the collage and painting stage in the studio.
The time lag between making the collage papers and actually using them in paintings continues to fascinate me. Here, I notice the slight resist in the sky caused by the blue over an existing dry layer of glue. All studio papers are kept for reuse....there is no telling what will be useful. Spoken like a true packrat, I know, but in this piece you can actually see how so called rubbish is transformed.
