This week in art

Here is what I have been working this week.


This collage is made up of several layers. The background consists of one-inch strips from various Gelli® prints glued to a sheet of watercolour paper. The second collage layer is made up of circles cut out of an old book, and painted with Derwent Inktense pencils. Then circles are added with acrylic paint.

Gelli® Print collage


This digital collage is made up of a winter landscape photo, layered with a bird silhouette,

and this one is made up of three layers: a photo of Hostas from my garden, a colourful Gelli® print, and a bird silhouette.
