Although Gill and I are at other ends of Greece right now, we've still managed to keep up our collages, and today had a meeting on Skype to present our latest works - how techy is that?! The subject was 'boats' and from this end, boats it was...... I'm presently on the island of Skiathos and everywhere there is water there are boats, fortunately in the old harbour, a lot of the more traditional ones. Below are my two A3 collages. Gill enjoyed the subject so much, we're extending it for another week. It may have been noticed that these 'weeks' sort of stretch out a bit and can become two or three 'weeks' - Greek style!
Working with the last two subjects, I've had fun trying two different collage techniques. One is using collage as an under surface, and then painting the subject on top, in a nice loose way, if I can manage it. The second one is making a collage consisting of various bits and pieces of the subject
