So. I wanted to make a collage art piece, using this verse:
Only here’s the thing. I had a general idea of how I wanted it to end up, but not a clue how to get from idea to finished painting…
Started with a board and used gel medium to glue old phone book pages all over the top and sides of the board:
After it dried, painted it with gesso and added some shading around the edges with brown:
When I got to the actual painting part, I realized, hey, I have NO idea how best to go about this.
And thus ensued a massive amount of trial and error.
At which point I decided it would be best to leave the art tutorials to the um, actual artsy type peoples of the world.
So just picture lots of: a) painting and b) repainting… mmkay?
Anyway. This is how it ended up:
It was fun trying something new and I will give it another shot sometime :)
