Enjoying Collage

Today I have some photos of a few of the collage pieces we have done in Karen Sako's class.  I am enjoying trying all different techniques. Each week we do a few homework pieces. This week I did our "color" homework. 

Tomorrow and Sunday I will have a cold wax and oil painting workshop with Mark Russell.  I love the look of encaustic and am hoping to achieve somewhat the same look with cold wax.

I am linking to Paint Party Friday, my Facebook and Pinterest pages and Twitter.
Paint Party Friday showcases about 50 different artists' creations for the previous week.  It is hosted each week by Kristin and Eva. Thank you, Ladies for giving us an opportunity to share our work.

Using my leftover acrylic paint primaries to create an abstract design.

The same design with the actual colors in the various types of color wheels.

Using my three primaries and discovering the possible combinations with black and white and with the other primaries.

Have a creative week, and thank you for stopping in.

    1. You are so right, Irene. Our instructor is having us use glue stix in class as opposed to gel medium or gesso/ or even Matte medium. Thanks!
