|Collage 1 of 31|
For August I wanted to give myself a little challenge/task to complete. Recently I’ve been following and been inspired by a lot of collage artists so I figured I’d do 31 Days of Collage.
Every day I’ll make and post a new collage (digital or physical collage depending on time constraints within that day)
I’m also thinking that at the end of the month it would be nice to offer them as prints if people are interested.
1: Dudley Hippodrome, acrylic ink, ink pen, image transfer on paper, 40 x 30 cm
2: Tipton Silos, acrylic ink, ink pen, image transfer on paper, 40 x 30 cm
Finished two art pieces for a group exhibition in a couple of weeks. Both landscapes are based on places in my local area.
Each artwork has layers of image transferred vintage diagrams and acrylic ink on the paper underneath the drawings.
Spent a couple of hours in Photoshop extracting and putting together some diagram, texture and collage pieces ready to transfer to paper. Many of these diagrams are taken from the British Library’s public domain albums on Flickr.
These will make up the base textures to a coupe of artworks that will be submitted to exhibitions over the next couple of weeks.
I’m planning to print, cut and paste some parts and image transfer some parts using both gel medium and acetate printing techniques. Once on the paper the textures will be drawn, painted and inked over.
