It's in the Details
In my water media collages I start with large open shapes, solid color, then work my way down to more detail. I use old ads, torn papers from old watercolor paintings, monoprinted paper, old damaged books, anything. But, once in a while I get a special piece of paper from an artist that I don't want to use up all at once. If you look closely in the pink blossom you can see some handwriting on the paper- that piece is from Judy Wood. A mixed media artist that kindly shared some of her hand printed paper with me. Here is where paying attention to the details matters. Those little spots in your artwork that draw the viewers eye where you want it to go. Little pleasure places, and surprises. I put in gold foil, colored inks, the printed word, things that make it unique.
